Always make sure to restart apache or nginx after acquiring your new certificate! One poor guy didn't do this for 6 months...

I reran your test. Looking pretty good. :upside_down_face:

Apache. That's the restart command I used and I think is the default in Lightsail.

How about this? Should take you... 5 seconds to try. :smiley:

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, this is what's happening:

bitnami@ip-172-26-4-46:~ SSLProtocol TLSv1.2 SSLProtocol: command not found bitnami@ip-172-26-4-46:~
bitnami@ip-172-26-4-46:~$ /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami.conf
-bash: /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami.conf: Permission denied

  1. Open /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami.conf in your favorite text editor.
  2. Change the entry of SSLProtocol to TLSv1.2.
  3. Run /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart apache

Thank you for the prompt responses. This is the part I'm not able to understand. I only have a terminal within Lightsail I can use and where I'm running into an issue (refer to the screenshot below).

I'm not much of a dev, apologies if I'm missing something too obvious! :slight_smile:

Damn - nothing specific to Bitnami in the Mozilla page! ! !


Even the REFERENCE doesn't cover all cases
