Certbot doesn't list my URL? Wordpress

Posted June 22, 2020 498 views

Hi, sorry, I have no idea what I’m doing.. I have wordpress installed on ubuntu 18.04. Domain name works. I must’ve done something wrong though, because when I run certbot –apache in the terminal the only option is ’www.root’. I’ve looked for a solution, like editing the apache config but I don’t know how to do that. 😩 Any ideas?

Hi @Kep0a,

Usually, certbos uses your Apache vhost files. Have you by any chance added the domain to your default vhost file?

Usually, you need to add a new file for your domain and add the desired settings there. If you are uncertain how to do so,I’ll recommend checking out the following DigitalOcean guide

It will help you out with properly setting a separate vhost file.
