SSL is not applied on my site after I successfully enabled HTTPS

I have followed the Certbot instruction for my ubuntu server, and the steps successfully finished as expected. However, after I tried to access the website using HTTPS it did not work, but it is working using HTTP as usual. Any suggestion?

My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo certbot --nginx

It produced this output: Which names would you like to activate HTTPS for?

My web server is: nginx/1.14.0 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS (Bionic)

I can login to a root shell on my machine: Yes

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

Hi @Tesfay

there is a check of your domain, ~~5,5 hours old -

You have created two certificates, so that part has worked.

Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2020-02-14 2020-05-14 - 1 entries duplicate nr. 2
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2020-02-14 2020-05-14 - 1 entries duplicate nr. 1

But your https doesn’t work.

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G 301
Html is minified: 107,78 % 0.280 A -2 1.454 V
ConnectFailure - Unable to connect to the remote server

Works https internal?


from that server?

What says

nginx -T
certbot certificates

Hi @JuergenAuer,

Here are the commands with their results:

Command 1: curl
Result 1: curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 443: Connection refused

Command 2: certbot certificates
Result 2:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

Found the following certs:
Certificate Name:
Expiry Date: 2020-05-14 07:48:27+00:00 (VALID: 89 days)
Certificate Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/
Private Key Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/

Moreover, now, both HTTP and HTTPS are not working.

Solved! The issue was docker related. :slight_smile:
