Why is WordPress https not working when SSL was configured?

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

  • I meant to say in the parenthesis (which was working fine, but now is not)

  • 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.

  • Yes, it actually was blocked by the firewall. Thanks!
