Hi @pducharme,

Thank you for using Bitnami. Could you please give us more details on the way you are configuring the certificates in your server?

Once you generated the certificate with WP-Encrypt plugin, you need to configure Apache to use those certificates. Did you follow all the steps detailed in our guide How To Enable HTTPS Support With SSL Certificates?. Is there any step that you are not able to complete?

We’ll be looking forward to receiving your reply.

Best regards,

I tried following the doc, but none of the cert files I get from the WP-Encrypt plugins are the same. Here is a pic of what I have for certs files :slight_smile:

Hi @pducharme,

Were you able to solve the issue? By accessing to your site, it shows a valid SSL certificate :thumbsup:

Best regards,

@pducharme As you noted, the WP-Encrypt plugin creates differently named files, but the necessary files are all there. It took me a while, but I figured out what they were.
