I successfully installed Let’s Encrypt at and But when installing at, Google Chrome and many other browsers do not trust it. Really not to sure what to do, have been researching for hours. Will add more information below:

server {

    location = /50x.html {

       # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on the php-fpm socket

            fastcgi_index index.php;

            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root/$fastcgi_script_name;
            include fastcgi_params;


    location ~ /\.ht {
       deny all;

    location /core {

            auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/pma_pass;

Well, your server servs the following certs:

Certificate chain
 0 s:/CN=fake/O=My Company Name LTD./C=US
   i:/CN=fake/O=My Company Name LTD./C=US

That’s not Let’s Encrypt obviously…

Did you reload/restart ngingx et cetera?


Are you sure that your web server is terminating the TLS connection? There’s an odd via: 1.1 stark, 1.1 stark header being sent by your server. Is there some kind of reverse proxy, CDN, load balancer or something like that in front of your web server?


Certificate chain
0 s:/
i:/C=US/O=Let’s Encrypt/CN=Let’s Encrypt Authority X3
1 s:/C=US/O=Let’s Encrypt/CN=Let’s Encrypt Authority X3
i:/O=Digital Signature Trust Co./CN=DST Root CA X3

I ran the same command


I pointed the domain back to godaddy for the day/night… I’m going to rebuild from Scratch tomorrow if I can’t find the answers tonight…

#6 points to… Is that correct?




The website jumps back and forth from the SSL and Privacy Error message…
