I am trying to setup an SSL certificate on my droplet. However it is not working, and I don’t know how to troubleshoot it for issues that I can then go and correct.
In /etc/apache2/ssl-certs i have my certificate, intermediate certificate and keyfile
In /etc/apache2/sites-available i have 2 files which were with the droplet on installation - 000-default.conf and default-ssl.conf.
I have followed instructions from https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-an-ssl-certificate-from-a-commercial-certificate-authority but when I try to go to my site under https nothing happens.
so… how can i troubleshoot this to find any errors? do i need both of those original conf files or will 1 be enough? I have never setup SSL before and so am really stuck. Any help at all would be really appreciated.
