Expired, but successfully renewed, but still not working HTTPS yet

I am running my site on AWS Lightsail. My SSL certification has expired. But when I ran those commands below, the result was successful on the SSH shell. But still I have an error message when I typed “https://” in “incognito mode” of the Chrome browser. Here is more information.

My domain is:atasfoundation.org

I ran these commands:

echo $DOMAIN && echo $WILDCARD
sudo certbot -d $DOMAIN -d $WILDCARD --manual --preferred-challenges dns certonly

It produced this output: after two new TXT values for _acme-challenge., I saw the success notice such as "Congratulations!.. ")

My web server is (include version): apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 14

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: AWS Lightsail

I can login to a root shell on my machine: yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site: no

The version of my client: certboot 0.31.0

I really appreciate if you can help me on this matter.

Hi @wondertree

you have created a new certificate - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=atasfoundation.org

Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
Let's Encrypt Authority X3 2019-10-06 2020-01-04 *.atasfoundation.org, atasfoundation.org
2 entries duplicate nr. 1
Let's Encrypt Authority X3 2019-07-07 2019-10-05 *.atasfoundation.org, atasfoundation.org

Let's Encrypt Authority X3 2019-04-07 2019-07-06 *.atasfoundation.org, atasfoundation.org

So that part has worked.

But --manual doesn't install or restart your server. So you have to do that.

It's your third certificate. So minimal restart your server.

If that isn't enough, install it - like 2019-07-07.


@JuergenAuer Thank you, as always!


use o plugin Wp Really Simple SSL

Oi @jonh_palladino,

Porque decidiu sugerir o uso desse plugin aqui nesse tópico e sugerí-lo com uma mensagem em português no meio de uma discussão em inglês?

Contribuições em português são muito bem-vindas nesse fórum, mas aconselho verificar a relevância do tópico antes de postar.
