Question OCSP stapling only partial ?
I'm really new with ocsp stapling.

I activated it on our website.

Before we had 2 ocsp calls but it still remain one call to

Is it normal ?
Maybe my apache configuration is not ok ?
SSLCACertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
        SSLStaplingCache shmcb:/tmp/stapling_cache(128000)
        SSLUseStapling on

# echo QUIT | openssl s_client -servername -connect -status 2> /dev/null | grep -A 17 'OCSP response:' | grep -B 17 'Next Update'
OCSP response:
OCSP Response Data:
    OCSP Response Status: successful (0x0)
    Response Type: Basic OCSP Response
    Version: 1 (0x0)

I was thinking once activated there will be no more ocsp call Smile

RE: OCSP stapling only partial ?
The certificate change is leaf ( > intermediary (sectigo) > root (User Trust)

In this case it looks like the intermediary cert from sectigo that's not being stapled, which is pretty common for digicert (which is who sectigo are) EV certificates

If you examine the cert chain in Chrome or Safari, you'll see the OCSP end point for the intermediary certificate matches the request you're seeing
