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?

Let's Encrypt is a Certificate Authority (CA) that provides an easy way to obtain and install free TLS/SSL certificates, thereby enabling encrypted HTTPS on web servers. In this tutorial, you will use Certbot to obtain a free SSL certificate for Apache on Ubuntu 18.04 and set up your certificate to renew automatically.

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,
