Really Simple SSL

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 ran this command:
followed everything in this video by aws

It produced this output:
When is came to last part of installing really simple sll it won’t work.

My web server is (include version): linux apache2 aws lightsail setup

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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):

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

Hi @TaylorK

checking your domain - - there is a valid and new wildcard certificate. So that works.

Only problem (but it’s not really a problem): Your www doesn’t have an A- or AAAA-record.

Host T IP-Address is auth. ∑ Queries ∑ Timeout A Sydney/New South Wales/Australia (AU) - Amazon Technologies Inc. Hostname: yes 1 0
AAAA yes Name Error yes 1 0

So you can’t use your www version, but your non www version works.

Grade H, so no redirect http -> https, but the https row has a Grade B, so the certificate is valid.

And you have already created 3 identical certificates.

Hi Osiris,
Yes its interesting as I follow exactly the same steps for another website, precisely and it worked… Okay if you can refer a link to a recommended source following steps that a bulletproof that would be helpful . I do get all the way to the end when congratulations you have obtained the certificate, then I chmod on the wp config file to allow access using really simple ssl and it doesn’t work for me on this occasion.

Ahh yes I see, awesome so do I change that somehow in the dns settings?

Hi JeurgenAuer, please find the following website address,, I went to the configuration in light sail and it looks identical , how would one change the requirements you mentioned regarding the “www”
