Installed successfully but nothing happening on website

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:

I ran this command: all the commands you’ll see on this page run one by one

It produced this output: Results were successful but nothing changed on website

My web server is (include version):Apache Ubuntu 14.04

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 14.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Linod

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

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

Could you paste the exact output of the commands you ran? Because I’m doubting they actually ran successfully.

You didn’t answer the “can you login as root”. Is that because you don’t know the answer? If you can’t run a shell as root (or don’t have root access through sudo), the instructions on the page you link won’t work.

hi @kd_5589

You have obtained a certificate

However you have not installed it. You are still using a self signed certificate on your site

If you look at the instructions page, there are two alternative Certbot commands given.

For the first one, it says

Running this command will get a certificate for you and have Certbot edit your Apache configuration automatically to serve it.

For the second one, it says

If you're feeling more conservative and would like to make the changes to your Apache configuration by hand, you can use the certonly subcommand:

If you used the second command rather than the first one, you would be expected to edit your own Apache configuration in order to tell Apache to use the certificate that you obtained. (That's what certonly means: only obtain the certificate, don't configure any software on the system to use it.)

I used this command

$ sudo certbot --apache

not the second one and as @ahaw021 saying that I have obtained certificate but i have not installed it.

So can you please help me out what should I do next?

You might have conflicting Apache configuration directives for your two different certificates (the old self-signed one and the new Let’s Encrypt one). You can probably find the directives with

grep -r SSLCert /etc/apache2
