Can't generate SSL Certificate with Laravel Forge

My domain is: cohas.nl

I clicked the “Obtain Certificate” button on Laravel Forge site under SSL.

It produced this output:

Hi @Mitchel387

that’s a Comodo certificate, not a Letsencrypt certificate.

So ask Comodo or your provider.

@Mitchel387,

If you want to use a Let’s Encrypt certificate in Laravel Forge, this post might help. https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/forge/setting-up-lets-encrypt-on-forge
