Browser thinks cert has expired, but server shows all active


#1

Site has been running fine for a while. There was some issues with the certs on initial setup of the server. When I go to the website via a browser, (https://www.bluedogwebsites.com/) I get an “Your connection is not private” Error. Looking at the certificate it says it is invalid, and expired this morning. Testing it using an SSL checker, show’s it’s fine (https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=bluedogwebsites.com) and checking the certificates on the server is seems fine (see below). I can’t help but think there’s a rouge cert somewhere, but have no idea where it could be.

What am I missing?

My domain is: www.bluedogwebsites.com

I ran this command:

  1. sudo certbot certificates
  2. sudo apache2ctl -S
  3. cat /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/bluedogwebsites.com-le-ssl.conf

It produced this output:

Fixed. I did a hard restart of apache and it seems to be working now. My bad. Should have done that before I posted.
