New domain cant access it

February 23, 2019 290 views

Got a new domain But having issues accessing it.
So on Mac Safari it works. It opens default apache page. But when i try on Chrome and FireFox also cleared cache i cant access getting refused to connect.

Also when doing Ping:
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=59 time=16.893 ms

So it works, but i can’t understand why i’m having issues still.

It’s DNS propagation delay. Give it some time and it will resolve properly.


  • I don’t think this is the issue. I think it’s the SSL stuff, when i use Safari and enter it works!!! but when i add s to http then i’m having the issue.

    My understanding that .dev already has SSL so i need to tell Apache some how that.

    • From what I’m seeing, it won’t work with any browser. Apache isn’t listening or serving anything on SSL:

      $ curl -vvv
      *   Trying
      * TCP_NODELAY set
      * connect to port 443 failed: Connection refused
      * Failed to connect to port 443: Connection refused
      * Closing connection 0
      curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 443: Connection refused

      Here are the instructions to get this going:

      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.
