Why can't I connect to HTTPS on my site?
All of the SSL certificates have been downloaded but I'm still not able to obtain a secure SSL connection. Here is what I'm seeing when I try to connect over port 443 (HTTPS):
curl -IL 123.456.789.10:443
curl: (7) Failed to connect to 123.456.789.10 port 443: Connection refused
I'm using a Debian 8 distribution and Apache.
You'll need to make sure that you have an Apache "Virtual hosts" file for your site that provides a path to your certificates:
Once the Virtual Hosts file is all set up you'll want to make sure that the Apache SSL module is enabled and then enable the the virtual host file that you just created (using the domain name example.com):
Then you just need to restart Apache to apply the changes:
systemctl restart apache2
