Certbot Error SSL

Apache Ubuntu

My certbot installation makes the following error in my pages:

139705841026880:error:1408F10B:SSL routines:ssl3getrecord:wrong version number:ssl/record/ssl3_record.c:332:

I’ve tried to fix apache, certbot, enable ssl, but with no results. any ideas?

While I’ve never encountered this error before, it sounds like you may have limited SSL configuration in a way that is preventing certbot from working. I would recommend walking back some of your SSL configuration. Perhaps consider commenting out SSLCipherSuite and SSLProtocol in your configuration, restarting Apache, and then running certbot again.
