Site blocked after enabling LetsEncrypt and forcing HTTPS redirect


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:

My operating system is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04

My web server is (include version): Apache2

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: DigitalOcean

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

Aside from the basics above, we have certain school’s using our site having this site blocked. My hunch is that it’s a school IT policy where they used to have our domain whitelisted and the new one is not. This theory is stronger since other schools can still access our site. I just want to make sure, however, that nothing looks funky about the SSL setup via letsencrypt.

I set it up with the following:

sudo letsencrypt --apache -d -d -d -d

So we want them to be able to access all of these via HTTPS.


Seems to me there’s nothing wrong with your HTTPS:

You can check the other subdomains if you’d like, but I think chances are slim you’d find anything else than an “A” rating.


Maybe some of the schools’ censorware is blocking HTTPS by default?
