Keywords: LimeSurvey - AWS - How to - Secure Connections (SSL/HTTPS)
Please forgive me if this question is a bit ignorant (I am learning).
I have a Bitnami Stack for LimeSurvey hosted on an AWS ec2 instance. Everything was working as expected until I changed the
IPv4 Public IP to an Elastic IP address. I did this as a first step in getting an SSL certificate for my LimeSurvey application (so that when participants click on the survey, they are taken to a secure website).
Since changing the IPv4 Public IP address, I can no longer access the LimeSurvey via my browser (with, for example,
22.214.171.124/index.php/admin/authentication/sa/login to log in). The error I get in my browser is:
Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at <<IP_ADDRESS>>.
I can still log on to the Bitnami Stack for Limesurvey via SSH, after having changed the Public DNS (IPv4) to the new elastic IP address in the
bitnami@ec2-<<IP_ADDRESS>>.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com of the SSH call.
I am assuming that I need to change a file on the Bitnami Stack for Limesurvey so that I can access the LimeSurvey app via a browser (and so that others can as well, in order to complete surveys). However, I cannot figure out how to do this, and cannot find documentation for this specific problem.
Thank you in advance for your help!
