Ok Thank you!!- There is a port number that is added to the end of the unifi.cdsolutions.net:XXXX —- Is there anything I should be doing with that as far as SSL or with my DNS settings?? Im really the only one that uses the sites but just concerning all the browsers are showing not secure…
I have a ubnt cloud also and ubiquiti integrated lets encrypt into the program so setup is VERY simple and shows secure.

Does your webserver have a 301 non-ssl -> ssl redirect in it?

For my configuration using NGINX that would look something like this…

server {
  listen 80;

  server_name domain.name;

  ... 

  location / {
    return 301 https://www.domain.name$request_url;
  }

  ...
}
  • not that I am aware of.... The lets encrypt ssl worked for the initial 90 days but at around renewal time is when it stopped. Looking at the SSL Lab report all is green and show updated dates / all green. Server is Ubuntu 16.04 - I can even run the command sudo certbot renew –dry-run and shows no errors… all good. Im VERY new at linux… Thank you to all who help.

Hello, @cdsolutions

Your SSL Certificate is fine, you can check it via this link - https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=unifi.cdsolutions.net

At the moment unifi.cdsolutions.net is redirecting to the https version itself, so everything appears to be fine, except for the fact the page loads the default apache page.

If you have concerns about the SSL Certificate, there is no need to worry.

That was it… I needed to open site with out the port at the end and get the default page. Now we are showing secure. Thanks!
