I've been trying to configure SSL on my server for last 4 days now, with absolutely no success. I've generated a CSR file and uploaded the certificate and configured a Vhost, but nothing seems to work. I don't get any errors when I restart Apache and error log doesn't have anything in it.
When I talked to my certificate provider to see if they can help they said " We are unable to connect to the server "example.com" through the port#443. Please ensure that the port#443 is open on your external firewall to enable SSL. "
When I ran UFW Status to see if the port was open I got following result, which seems to show it is open.
To Action From -- ------ ---- 443/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 22 ALLOW Anywhere 22/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 80/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 21/tcp ALLOW Anywhere 443/tcp ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 22 ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 22/tcp ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 80/tcp ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 21/tcp ALLOW Anywhere (v6) 443/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere 443/tcp ALLOW OUT Anywhere (v6)
When I use online port checker website to see if it is open, it shows 443 closed and every other port in the list to be open. At this point I have no idea what else to do to open port 443, some help would be much appreciated. I am running Ubuntu.
