Installed certbot - can't access through https

Hi there! I just installed certbot and the webroot plugin using the “$ sudo certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/example -d” command and everything got installed. I also checked the certificate and got the result that it was there. So far so good.
But I cant seem to get https access. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas? Thanx for a great service and a great community!

My domain is:

My web server is (include version): Apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): fedora 27

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: hosting privately on my server on http port 80

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): 0.27.1

Hi @snogge

there is a check of your domain -

You have created a certificate:

CertSpotter-Id Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
915317695 CN=Let's Encrypt Authority X3, O=Let's Encrypt, C=US 2019-05-16 15:06:23 2019-08-14 15:06:23
1 entries duplicate nr. 1

but there is a timeout:

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G 200 0.146 H 200 0.147 H -14 10.027 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out -14 10.027 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out

The reason:

certonly doesn't install the certificate.


sudo certbot -d

so Certbot should find the certificate and should ask if you want to install it.

If not, perhaps first create a certificate with the www and the non-www version. You have both dns entries.

Hi and thank you for a quick reply - I extended the certificate to aswell!
But when I try to run sudo certibot -d, or, I get this;
