Hello @teleinceogmailcom

After resetting the root password, the SSL certificate may have stopped working if it relies on certain services to function properly.

You can check the status of the web server (e.g., Apache or Nginx) and ensure it is running. The next step will be to check the SSL certificate expiration to see if it requires renewal.

If it requires renewal, you can use certbot (Let’s Encrypt) to renew the certificate.

Hope that this helps!
