Unable to install SSL certificate. Please help

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:
www.storyalerts.com

I ran this command:
$ openssl s_client -connect www.storyalerts.com:443 -showcerts 2>/dev/null | openssl x509 -noout -subject -issuer -dates

It produced this output:
unable to load certificate

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

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Not sure of the relevancy…

Topic says you are unable to install SSL cert - but you already have a valid cert installed.

A few hours earlier there was a timeout checking the https version. But I don’t know how openlitespeed works.
