I use rmarkdown/flexdashboard to knit together documents as an easy way to share information - a few weeks ago, the "render()" function started producting an error. I have seen similar conversations on this topic, but can't seem to find one that answers my question.
--- title: "Report Name" output: flexdashboard::flex_dashboard: vertical_layout: scroll theme: sandstone ---
render(input = "//location//report.Rmd" ,output_dir = "outputlocation")
TlsExceptionHostPort (HandshakeFailed (Error_Protocol ("certificate rejected: [NameMismatch \"xx.xxx.xx.xx\"]",True,CertificateUnknown))) "WinShare" 80 Error: pandoc document conversion failed with error 67
I read on a few threads that adding "selfcontained = no" to the rmarkdown heading eliminates this problem (and indeed it does) but then I am unable to share the .html rmarkdown documents with others (does not render correctly).
They will render correctly if I open up the .Rmd document and knit it directly in RStudio - its just the "render()" command that does not work. I have 15-20 of these I knit regularly, so knitting them individually is not ideal.
