Question

WordPress and Let's Encrypt - Using HTTPS takes me to an HTML index page

I recently got my site up and running following these tutorials: How to Secure Apache with Let’s Encrypt How to Install WordPress

My problem is that despite refusing standard HTTP connections, typing my domain simply takes me to my WordPress site. If I manually type “https://” before my domain, I’m taken to my HTML index/test page. What’s happening here?

Hi @tylerferguson

Can you post your VirtualHost configurations for both HTTP (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443)?
