I’m working on a project and my task was to setup the LetsEncrypt SSL cert, which I did. However, I then needed to redirect the http to https, which is where I screwed up. I changed the URL within wp-admin from http to https, and it broke the site, so now I can’t get back in. To make things better, I tried to SSH into the machine so I could try changing the config file, but the console doesn’t load. I also can’t seem to SSH into the device.
The droplets weren’t setup by me. They were setup by my professor.
Is there an easy way to fix this, or should I just revert to a backup and start over?
To clarify, I setup the SSL certificate through the DO security tab, not by installing anything onto the machine itself. I’ve been finding different documentation about needing something called Certbot? I can’t seem to find anything specific to my circumstances.
