Newbie: Site not working after unsuccessful attempt at deleting SSL certificate
Hello. I have an old version of Ubuntu (its a long story, I cant update right now for the next few months since its running an old version of a website which my developers are reworking with latest version of php etc).
My previous developer had assigned an SSL certificate. Then left. Which expired. I couldn’t update it for various reasons. Now I tried to delete it. being a newbie I think I didn’t do it well.
Now my site isn’t working. Browser says cant connect to server.
Nginx doesn’t seem to be running.
I get the : “BIOnewfile(”/etc/letsencrypt/live/websitename.com/fullchain.pem") failed (SSL"
Active: failed (Result: exit-code)
Failed with result ‘exit-code’
(not necessarily in that order. I typed the above errors because I couldn’t copy paste from the console :(
