Need to have an HTTPS already up?

Hi all,
Using “sudo certbot --apache certonly”, it fails because the connection was refused to my server on HTTPS/443.
That’s fair enough, because I did not launch HTTPS yet.
Have I got to enable HTTPS/443? what SSL Files with?

I ask because I’m asking for certificates with “certbot”…
Thank you.

You don’t need https already set up, but you do need port 443 already open in your firewall. At least if you’re using the --apache plugin. Others can work over port 80 or via DNS. But you’ll probably want port 443 open anyway :slight_smile:
