Exactly.

Did you already put the CNAME records on your control panel?
May I see a screenshot inside of your acmeDomains?


Yes. I did put the CNAME Records.

You need to upload the Private Key first, then the certificate.

I already read that and have gone through the whole process. Still no good.

You need to generate a private key first using the Generate Key/CSR from the control panel, like what Ergastolator1 said.

OK… I just did that. Now what?

Then install or upload your certificate that you get from the tool.


Still the same results.

When this one become ready?

Approximately 7 hours ago.

I didn’t say to generate a new private key and CSR. @jeehelp.website, first upload the Private Key from the certificate page, and only after that you can proceed to upload the certificate.

Yeah, sorry, I just tell him to generate a new private key since he doesn’t have one.

Done. Now how much time will it take to see the changes and the padlock sign?

You already got the HTTPS padlock! Clear your browser caches to see.

But you need to redirect the http request to https using really simple ssl plugin on wordpress. :slight_smile:
