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. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is: sfbrowns.com
I ran this command: certbot --apache
It produced this output:
[root@ip-172-31-25-32 conf.d]# certbot --apache

I am completely new to Let's Encrypt. This is the first time I have tried to enable https for this server, but I have manually installed SSL certs on previous incarnations of it (same OS and http server). I just didn't want to have to purchase a cert this time around.
Anyway, I finally got it installed, but Chrome and Edge both tell me that the cert is invalid with a ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID error. The cert has 'ip-172-31-25-32.us-west-1.compute.internal' for the subject and issuer instead of my domain name. How can I get a proper cert for my domain name instead? And for both the domain name and the 'www'?
If it is not possible to do this, then I will just go ahead and buy a cert from the cheapest CA I can find and install it by hand. How can I completely remove/revert the changes that certbot did?
