Can't generate SSL Certificate with Laravel Forge

My domain is:

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

It produced this output:

--2019-07-11 12:23:55--
Resolving (,, 2606:4700:20::6819:920, ...
Connecting to (||:443... connected.

  Unable to locally verify the issuer's authority.
To connect to insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'.

The operating system my web server runs on is
Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.15.0-45-generic x86_64)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Laravel Forge

I can login to a root shell on my machine:

I’m using a control panel to manage my site
Yes, Laravel Forge as Admin

Hi @Mitchel387

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

So ask Comodo or your provider.


If you want to use a Let’s Encrypt certificate in Laravel Forge, this post might help.
