but an external ssl checker says

Serial Number: 03db92a34492dd92dbb281139d0ab6d58e34

What to do? I think the cert that’s installed is an obsolete one - I went through the
certificate creation process twice.

Hi @ddyer,

Silly question, did you restart/reload your apache server after issuing the certificates?


hi @ddyer

Obtaining a certificate is not the same as installing on the server

If you review the serial of the certificate that was used by your webserver https://crt.sh/?serial=03db92a34492dd92dbb281139d0ab6d58e34

You can see it’s an older certificate

I see you have now updated the certificate
