Error when using mosquitto - wrong version number


Details are below. I am using my site as a MQTT broker with SSL /Let’s Encrypt.

My domain

I ran this command: sudo tail /var/log/mosquitto/mosquitto.log

It produced this output:Socket error on client , disconnecting.
1539343504: Client connection from failed: error:1408F10B:SSL routines:ssl3_get_record:wrong version number.
1539343506: New connection from on port 8883.
1539343506: OpenSSL Error: error:1408F10B:SSL routines:ssl3_get_record:wrong version number
1539343506: Socket error on client , disconnecting.
1539343508: New connection from on port 8883.

My web server is (include version): nginx

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):linux

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:Digital Ocean

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

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


Could it be the client is using SSLv3? When I connect with OpenSSL myself, it connects finely. However, when I add -ssl3 to the command, it fails.
