SSL: Domain redirects to IP address for certificate; VirtualHost redirection follows too late
When people visit www.example.com and example.com, they are immediately redirected to my ip droplet 127.0.0.1 and see the SSL certificate warning. Because Lets Encrypt certifies domains, it says the certificate is only valid from example.com.
When you click “Continue at my own risk.” The VirtualHost redirection works and transfers to my https://example.com.
How can I make the VirtualHost redirection begin before the domains redirect to the IP address?
