Invalid certificate

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 am running a apache server locally. I have created SSL certificate using certbot

DocumentRoot “C:/xampp/htdocs/”
SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile “conf/ssl.crt/fullchain.pem”
SSLCertificateKeyFile “conf/ssl.key/privkey.pem”
<Directory “C:/xampp/htdocs/dashboard”>
Options All
AllowOverride All
Require all granted

Above is the virtual host configuration I used. but when I open the url with https it says invalid certificate. Can anyone help me pls.

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

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): yes

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): cerbot 1.5.0

That "domain" belongs to Microsoft:


You should use an FQDN from a domain you actually own (or an FQDN from a free public domain).
