Hello. I'm trying to connect to my xmpp server which provides self-signed cert. I've added server's and ca's certificates to /etc/pki/tls/certsaccording to answer in here but i can't connect.

If i check "ignore ssl error" then it's working just fine.

That answer is old, maybe certstore moved to some other location?

Currently only /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt is read with telepathy-gabble, if we try to read all the certificates under /etc/pki/tls/certs it will lead in a situation telelepathy-gabble to consume all the memory available. In the future this problem will be solved by centralized certificate storage, but until then you can use a workaround mentioned at

# mkdir -p /home/nemo/.config/telepathy/certs/
# cp /home/nemo/Downloads/jabber-ca_or_cert.crt /home/nemo/.config/telepathy/certs/

jabber-ca-or_cert.crt being your self-signed certificate.
