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.

For HTTPS port 443 needs to be open. It seems to be closed now. This might be due to a firewall or perhaps a missing or incorrect NAT portmap if you're using a NAT router on your home connection and your site is also served from behind that NAT router.
ooooo I dont have port 443 open (I thought I did) I will try that now and let you know the results, I am using a NAT router but I have it set to open if that matters ? Thank you so much for your fast reply. should I set it to TCP or open for both TCP and UDP ?
the NAT type I have it set to open. I opened port 443/tcp do I need to restart ufw for the changes, if not, it didn't work. I am not so sure what you mean by the NAT portmap ? Ill google it and come back with results. again thank you so much! I've been having such a hard time trying to figure this out. I am used to using hosts where installing the SSL is a simple copy and paste lol
When you said your host was "localhost", I assumed you're hosting the site yourself, right? Not at a hosting provider actually called "Localhost"?
Yeah I am running it from a home server but my previous sites were all located at actual hosting companies like hostgator , Bluehost etc , thanks for the information! I do have the port forwarded to 80 am I able to make another instance where it forwards to 443 ? should it be both or can there only be one ?
I think I figured it out lmk if I am wrong. but I can add a custom service I set its service name to HTTPS , set the protocol to TCP; the external port range to 443; and then set the IP to my server 192.168.1.14 ?
