Installed Let's Encrypt Certificate and Private Key on cPanel yesterday and now I have a "i" where the lock should be in the url

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.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

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

Hi @eleceng20! Welcome to the family.
Your wordpress site has some references to non encrypted urls.

Like @Rip said, you have added the certificate and now you have a mixed content issue. Most likely this is caused by incorrectly setup your WordPress site.

The solution is relatively easy:
Login to your WordPress site admin panel and change the “WordPress Address (URL)” and “Site Address (URL)” both to https. (from http)
Purge any cache (from both server / cpanel and your own browser)

Update any link if you are using a page builder that directly embedd your pictures etc with link. (Not the usual approach)
