Installation of SSL completed. Cert is valid but google chrome shows invalid


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

Basically, the installation of SSL is successful but when I navigate to, google chrome shows certifcate is invalid. But if you go to the certificate, it’s valid. Please help!

My web server is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

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): yes

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