Raspberrypi Wordpress Apache fix

I’ve been setting up a Raspberrypi Wordpress homeserver for some self-promo artwork. My domain name has a CNAME pointed to www.davidhallows.duckdns.org That all works fine but after rebuilding it several times I can no longer to get my certificates to work. Last time I used the certbot ato and it went well, this time I really don’t know what is going on. Before I mess up my whole darn system again and start afresh, i’d be super grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

My domain is:www.davidhallows.com

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Raspberrypi Buster

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:Justhost

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

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

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

Be sure the IP is current in duckdns and that port 80 is being allowed through and accepted.

IP currently:
Name: www.davidhallows.duckdns.org
Address: 92.30.233.43

Current Port 443 response:

openssl s_client -connect 92.30.233.43:443
CONNECTED(00000134)

HTTP (and DNS) appears to be working:

What happens when you run certbot-auto ?
[although, you wrote: certbot auto, you probably meant certbot-auto]

Hi @DaveHy

checking your domain you have http over port 443 - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=davidhallows.duckdns.org

If https doesn't work, but if a Http Status -4 is visible, the tool tries to check http over port 443.

And checking

http://davidhallows.duckdns.org:443/

there is a correct redirect http status 301 to your main domain.

So you have

  • a wrong port forwarding (or)
  • an incomplete port 443, that's a http-port (not a https port)

First step: Check your port forwarding port port 443 extern -> port 443 intern.
Second step: What says

curl https://davidhallows.duckdns.org/
curl http://davidhallows.duckdns.org:443/

from a console of that server?

It's an apache, so what says

apachectl -S

Thanks both. I’ll get back to you tomorrow, much appreciated :slight_smile:

Hi Jeurgen

So, I prompted your questions and here’s the answers, It’s a rather large, and somewhat incomprehensible to me, paste job -

    Apologies in advance :confused:
    Dave

    So you have internal the same problem, http over port 443. That's all, the complete output isn't required.

    There is no port 443 defined. So you can't connect port 443.

    On which machine did you run these commands?

    Looks like http://davidhallows.duckdns.org:443/ is another machine, not that raspberrypi.

    Thanks Juergen

    I ran the commands on my pi. So, how would I define the port 443? I’ve opened them up to tally with my pi’s internal ip…

    Sorry, I should say I ran the commands over putty from my Surface Pro…

    Your webserver doesn't have a port 443 - apachectl -S must show port 443, there is nothing.

    But

    http://davidhallows.duckdns.org:443/
    

    answers, so it looks that this answer isn't the machine you have executed

    apachectl -S
    

    Or it's another wrong port forwarding: External port 443 -> internal port 80. But then it shouldn't work internal.

    Hi Jeurgen

    Excuse my ignorance, should I therefore open up port 443 on my raspberry pi? Is that the usual protocol as well as doing it on my router?

    The screenshot of the router ports being forwarded looks good.
    [presuming your Pi is at 192.168.1.106]

    The issue now is within the Pi config.
    The web server needs to listen on 80 and 443.
    And apply TLS(SSL) to the connections on 443.
    You should review your config and make the necessary changes.

    As it stands, it seems to be listening on both ports but is NOT applying encryption (TLS/SSL) to the connections on port 443.;
    [so you’re half way there]

    A good way to test your progress:
    http://davidhallows.duckdns.org:443/
    https://davidhallows.duckdns.org:443/

    The first should fail but returns HTTP web content.
    The second should work (and be encrypted) but it fails.

    Thanks rg305

    Yes, the tests did produce the results you mentioned. Unfortunately my knowledge of reviewing the config is limited. Do you know how to proceed?

    Sure, just show the vhost config that should be doing the encryption.

    Ok, apologies again. I presume it’s in the Let’sEncrypt folder?

    No, it should be a file linked through:
    /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/<something>

    Weirdly, the sites-enabled folder has another folder inside that I cannot access, even though it has 777 permissions, 000-default.conf folder. Here’s my screen grab -

    000-default.conf should be a file (not a folder)

    Your picture shows the apache folder.
    Please show the sites-enabled folder.

    Here it is. Apart from that folder I mentioned, there’s nothing else in there…


    So it seems it is a broken symlink - victim of an rm command.
    Try deleting it.
    Or:
    unlink /etc/apache2/site-enabled/000-default.conf
