Certificate authority invalid

My domain is: intranet.poupin.fr

I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --standalone -d intranet.poupin.fr

It produced this output: Congratulations ! Your certificate and chaine have been save at ..

My web server is (include version): AWS / Apache/ 2.4.43 (Unix)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Lightsail / bitnami

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: aws

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 0.31.0


I have the alert message "ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID" when i am going to my website https://intranet.poupin.fr/.
I dont understand why ?
I don't have any problem for generate the certificate with certbot and i have the congratulations message ..
I have already reboot my apache services and the server.

How can i debug this ?

Thanks ,

Hi @jdenieul

the result is expected. certonly doesn't install the certificate and doesn't restart the service you want to use the certificate.

A restart is required.

PS: The site is public. There isn't an expired certificate, there is a self signed. So you have to install the certificate.

certbot --reinstall -d intranet.poupin.fr

@jdenieul, you might want to use --apache in this case instead of certonly --standalone.
