Attribute Error when setting up cerbot for WordPress website being hosted free on Google Cloud Platform

@linkp Thank you! I guess what is my next step from here? I'm not very code savvy and I'd like to get everything running as soon as I can so I can start building my website.

Any suggestions?

It looks like you have to open port 443. Is there something in Google Cloud where you have to do that?

Also, what does this show

sudo apache2ctl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS

@MikeMcQ I'm not sure, but I'll see if I can find something.

This is what that command shows:

domg_consulta@consulta-website-new-final:~$ sudo apache2ctl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS

VirtualHost configuration:
*:80 (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf:1)

I notice that you attempted to revoke a certificate immediately after the rate limit. Certificate revocation has no effect on rate limits. The only thing that does is waiting them out. You typically would only need to revoke a certificate of you lost control of its secret key.

Im going step back for a bit while you review your Apache config with @MikeMcQ, but I'll still be following along.


I'll be stepping away for a bit so go ahead and work on it :slight_smile:


The output from apache2ctl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS suggests bigger problems than I can address at the moment, as, I too, have other activities that demand my time presently.

Two things that concern me from the aforementioned output:

  1. There is no SSL vhost configured on port 443
  2. The vhost does not have a valid FQDN

I understand, I appreciate both of your guys' time. It might just be that I need to scrap everything and start over from scratch.

I wouldnt, as it will likely only serve to set you back, but that is ultimately your call. There are others here in the Community who may be able to assist you further.


@linkp @MikeMcQ I figured it out!!! I had left the "Allow Load Balancer Health Checks" unchecked. #facepalm
