Question

I am not able to install my godaddy ssl certificate on my ubuntu server.

As I was following the tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-an-ssl-certificate-from-a-commercial-certificate-authority. I have tried the same steps as mentioned above many times, but my website hasn’t turned to https. Please help me out with this. I have purchased my ssl from godaddy and want to install it on my apache ubuntu server.

Hello, @cs19150

Keep in mind that installing the SSL Certificate and setup the redirection from HTTP to HTTPS are separate processes.

Once the SSL is installed you can complete the redirection in your .htaccess file or in the virtual host file. Would you mind sharing your virtual host and the .htaccess file as well? Have you tried to set up the redirection in the Vhost as mentioned in the article:

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerName example.com
   Redirect permanent / https://example.com/
</VirtualHost>
