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.

I ran this command: I installed certificate according to certbot’s guide. (I am running nginx on ubutnu 18.04 machine)

It produced this output: My website times out now. While installing the certificate I did the force https option.

My web server is (include version): I am running nginx on an Ubuntu 18.04 machine.

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: digital ocean

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): certbot 0.28.0

Check your server’s firewall settings. You currently do not have port 443 permitted.

ufw status

or if you are using DigitalOcean Cloud Firewall, check that.

Many many thanks!
