Hi @kvny,

You’ll need to update your WebService’s config file (Apache/Nginx) to include the SSL you’ve installed. Can you let us know which of the two mentioned you are using so that I can provide you with more information on how to reach/find where to update the config files?

If you are unsure how to check which one you are using, you can enter your droplet via SSH and type in the following command:

netstat -tulpen | grep 80

It should display what service is listening on port 80, either Apache or Nginx. From there you can enter your configuration file and add your SSL bit to it.
