My problem is the following : I was able to get a LetsEncrypt thaks to the great FreeSSL.tech Auto app which is a php LE client.
The problem occured when I tried to connect a plugin to my site. It revealed the following problem :
" The certificate is not trusted in all web browsers. You may need to install an Intermediate/chain certificate to link it to a trusted root certificate."
But I don’t know where I missed a step. I indicated the Cert, CAbundle and pem to my hosting provider, indeed was able to activate https but never saw anything about an “intermediate chain” whatsoever and just started to discover the IdenTrust aspect of LE.
My domain is: fabiencrescent.com
I ran this command: Commands were run by FreeSSL.tech Auto app to issue the SSL certificate
It produced this output: “Please find the SSL files at the locations given below (web hosting log in required to access) and install SSL manually with the help of your web hosting service provider. It is recommended not to download the SSL files for security reason. Please copy the SSL locations and send the text to your web host.” (this message appeared in the FreeSSL.tech LE/acme/php client when I asked to issue a Cert; it was followed by the folders where cabundle, pem and crt were located)
My web server is (include version): LiteSpeed
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Linux … couldn’t find through putty/bash command
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Hostinger
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): no
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): yes , it’s called “hPanel” at Hostinger if I understand well…
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): my acme/LE client is FreeSSL.tech Auto (https://freessl.tech/documentation-free-ssl-certificate-automation)
Your help would be more than welcome (for the installation of this… intermediate chain apparently), thank you !
Edit : I just noticed that my SSL scan said there was a 4096bits Cert which was detected; which is weird because it is supposed to be the SSL certificate of another domain that my Hosting provider offered for free … hope it doesn’t cause my intermediate chain bug… (https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=fabiencrescent.com)
