Subdomain showing SSL but not on main domain

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. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot certonly --apache

It produced this output: certificates generated and installed.

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Cent OS 7.6

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Hosting24

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): not sure



I can open both your www and main (apex) domain without any issue. Is it might be browser cache related?

Thank you


Hi thanks for reaching out so quickly,

Actually there was another vhost configuration present in ssl.config file inside /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf file.

It's named as default ssl and was conflicting with the self generated certificate.

So I removed the whole tag in that file.

Restarted the server and now it's all good.

I write this whole thing as others having the same issue as me can resolve the issue as well.
