Hi @AbdulHadi

that's expected. http is never secure -> always no lock symbol.

That's not a problem, that's the result of a missing encryption.

PS: You should add a redirect http -> https.

@JuergenAuer, Thanks for the update.

Can you please share the standard document of redirect http -> https.

so that i will follow that document and configure it.

Thanks & Regards,

The output from Certbot is warning that your configuration uses the Apache RewriteRule directive to rewrite URLs on your site, in a way that might conflict with Certbot's attempts to use RewriteRule to forward HTTP to HTTPS. Since Certbot tried to do this but it isn't working, it probably does conflict.

Here is the documentation for this part of Apache:

Hopefully whoever created the pre-existing RewriteRule can understand the interaction between this and Certbot's added RewriteRule and find a correct way to combine them so they behave as desired.

If you're not sure how to proceed, you should post your Apache configuration here (use ``` before and after the pasted configuration so that the forum displays it as code) and someone familiar with this may be able to advise you.
