A few weeks back there was an issue with a change of IP address, I updated the IP for the, and everything was working great, now this? Can someone please help?, Thanks

Hi @maximomass

please answer correct. That's a check, not the command you have used to create the certificate.

And if you don't use Certbot, you have to share all relevant informations of your client.

Thanks for the reply. I've attached an image for

your viewing.

Please read "Mind the following" and do it.

Looks like "Install" of that curious client means "create a new certificate" - without "tell your webserver to use it".

Or ask the author of that tool or your hoster.

Doing that procedure takes me to HTTPS enforce where I can't do anything because I don't have any certs installed. I've already contacted them and they didn't want to escalate the issue or provide any logs in which it's not working. Thanks again

You have root access and you have an own nginx.

Why do you think such a tool of your hoster manages your nginx, if you have root access?

Root access means: Use the documentation and do these things manual.

Or switch to a shared hosting.


Read some required basics:

Then select a client

and create and install your own certificate.

Root access -> the tools of your hoster may be the wrong way.

It seems like your discussion with @JuergenAuer relates to uncertainty about which steps Siteground's version of cPanel does or doesn't do for you. If you're not sure about this, I would suggest asking Siteground's support or perhaps asking on the cPanel forum in order to clarify what this software is expecting you to do. (Many cPanel instances do perform all of the HTTPS setup steps for you, so it's not impossible that this could be fully automated just using cPanel. But if you're not sure, I think your hosting provider's support is a more practical place to go for a reliable answer.)
