Renewed Let's Encrypt Certificate and my wordpress website is gone back to default Apache Page

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: sudo /opt/bitnami/letsencrypt/lego --tls --email=“” --domains=“” --path="/opt/bitnami/letsencrypt" renew --days 90

It produced this output: 2019/12/30 09:35:16 [INFO] [] acme: Trying renewal with -13 hours remaining

2019/12/30 09:35:16 [INFO] [] acme: Obtaining bundled SAN certificate

2019/12/30 09:35:27 [INFO] [] Server responded with a certificate.

My web server is (include version): Apache

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: AWS

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 0.31.0

I have a Bitnami stack WP website on AWS. I was struggling to renew the certificate that had expired after its 90 days run. I was working on it and was finally able to install the certificate. When I visited the website, the default Apache page was there in all it’s glory. I got scared, but then on using FTP, I was able to ensure the website was there, the files are there. Now I just don’t know how can I have my wordpress website back on the front page. I am unable to do or any other operations. Please reply asap as my client is freaking out!

Thanks in advance!

Hi @parthbhalerao

looks like you have found the solution.

There - - is content, not a standard Apache site.
