Existing SSL certificate conflicts with a new one

Apache Ubuntu 18.04 Let's Encrypt


I just started to learn Linux server and tried to make a web site using WP.
So I installed a LAMP on VPS and WP on it using Digital Ocean tutorials.
Got my Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate for mydomain.ee.

To avoid problems I decided to make a dev. one web for mydomain.ee.
Made a copy of existing config:

$cp -p /etc/apache2/sites-available/mydomain.ee /etc/apach2/sites-available/dev.mydomain.ee

Made another wp dir. using the same command:

$cp -p /var/www/mydomain.ee /var/www/dev.mydomain.ee.

And also I got a new SSL certificate for dev.mydomain.ee.
So before I did this, dev.mydomain.ee worked very well, but now, when I want to go to dev.mydomain.ee it says:


You don’t have permission to access this resource.

So the question is how I can get rid of the existing certificate to get a new one?

Tell me if you need more information

did you verify the new folder contained all files of the old folder? “You don’t have permission to access this resource” is not an ssl cert error, more like a filesystem or apache config error
