Question

How long SSL certificates need to be activated?

Just added a new “Let’s Encrypt” certificate on my domain, the domain with “http” works but “https” doesn’t yet. Is there additional steps I need to make?

It will not take much time to get SSL issued. How did you issue Let’s Encrypt SSL for your domain? Can you please explain a bit more about it.

Thanks, Anuj
