I ran this command: Instructions for Nginx software on Ubuntu 16 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): no

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

Can provide ssh access to website to check. Thanks

Hi @Arnav,

What command did you use to install your certificate?


I followed the steps listed on this site:

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
  3. sudo add-apt-repository universe
  4. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
  5. sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install certbot python-certbot-nginx
sudo certbot --nginx

Thanks, and your WordPress site was working in HTTP before you did these steps?

Could you please share your web server configuration from /etc/nginx?
