Can anyone point me in the right direction for a tutorial on changing Wordpress Site from http:// to https:// using Nginx and Lets Encrypt?

I’ve attempted this several times, and borked it up everytime. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but everything goes smoothly and then bam! Can’t get the wp site to load, or able to log in.

I’ve changed url and home in datbase to use https:// and still none the wise. If anyone has a decent tutorial, or wouldn’t mind typing one up, that would be the best gift in the world.

Details: Nginx, mysql database, ubuntu 16 or highter, wordpress…

Thanks community!

I’ve just reinstalled certs and all seems to be working… I’m so confused. But at least it works! :)
