Hi,

What program are you used to request an certificate?

What’s the web server software? (Version)

Thank you

Hi @manish.katoch9

if you use a windows hosting: You have to allow files without an extension, because Letsencrypt wants such a file.

Create the directory

/.well-known/acme-challenge/

and put a file with a name like 123456789 (no extension, content “test” or something else).

Test, if you can load

http://www.supremetechnologiesindia.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/123456789

in your browser.

If this doesn’t work: An older post with the configuration:

Can you assist please?

Thanks!

Now this isn’t a problem of your certificate, this is correct.

When changing a website to https, you have to fix such mixed content warnings. Your page loads content per http, not per https.

Use FireFox or Chrome, then CTRL + Shift + I, then open the console. There you see the wrong http - links.
