@iThreatHunt: if I'm not mistaken there is an error in your /etc/default/minemeld configuration file. To use a proxy for https you should set the enviromental variable as

Is there a way to manually remove/re-install minemeld if it has been interrupted?

Hi @iThreatHunt,

MineMeld Miners automatically retries the connection in case of error.

In your case it seems that the Miner is not able to verify the remote cert. Are you doing SSL Decryption on the proxy or on the firewall between MM and the remote site ?

Hi @Imori,

This server is behind Proxy. Now I define my proxy on /etc/environment and /etc/default/minemld. You can see above posts.
How do I fix this issue?

Thank you

Is your proxy doing SSL decryption ?
