NOOB ALERT timeout using https://

My domain is:

I ran this command (in web browser):

It produced this output: This site can’t be reached took too long to respond.



My web server is (include version): Apache/2.4.38 (Raspbian)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: N/A

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): certbot 1.13.0


I had no errors installing the software and certificate, etc. But when I try to use https:// to access web site I get a timeout error in the browser.

Any ideas?


Perhaps very obvious, but have you checked for firewalls blocking port 443, as the error said? Or perhaps a missing portmap in your NAT router? Things like that.


Duh! You were right! I had the port forwarding misconfigured and I didn't think to look there because the certificate took. Thanks for pointing this noob in the right direction!
