letsencrypt SSL on wordpress

i have been struggling with this, i hope its not just me?

When ever i start with wordpress one click install, after my first login to console. I have been asked to install SSL by Let’s Encrypt, when i complete all steps and install SSL.

The SSL just doesn’t work - i tried deleting the server and installing a new one and most of the times, its the same problem.

Is there something wrong with this.

i figured so - i will keep that in mind and do it this way from next time.


To get the benefit of LetsEncrypt on that install, it may be best that you point your domain to the droplet’s IP address at least an hour before you complete that step. DNS caching may prevent LE from verifying the domain and issuing a certificate.
