Why is WordPress https not working when SSL was configured?

Posted February 6, 2016 6.4k views

Hi, I configured SSL according to this article, as well as for PHPMyAdmin using the PHPMyAdmin specific article (which is working fine), but I installed WordPress, and when I try to go to my IP in HTTP, it works fine, but when I try with HTTPS, I get “ERRCONNECTIONTIMED_OUT.” I would appreciate any help in solving this. Thanks, Jared

If you log in to a console on your server, try using ’wget’ or ’curl’ with your https URL. If you’re able to return the index.html file, then your https port (443) is blocked by your firewall.
