Does https encription prevent my site from cmg?


#1

Hi,
i have a wordpress site at serialbiz.com, but its not coming through.
I had changed the server path. Now im not sure if the https Let’s Encrypt certificate is suffering from that and the page is not connected right.

What can i check to find out ?

Regards,
Frank

It’s working for me, but there’s nothing in the directory other than the DreamHost Quickstart file.

Hey Scott,
thx for checking. I matched the paths between hosting setup and FTP for serialbiz.com and the folder seems correct, it has the WP files in it. I recognized that the old path is being re-created with the default files nw 2nd time after i deleted the previous dir before.

No sure why the hosting panel shows the correct new path, while the system keeps re-creating the new path. Does it have something to do with SSL maybe ?

SSL might be part of it. To create the SSL Certificate, DreamHost creates a .well-known folder in your hosting folder so Let’s Encrypt can verify your site. The process most likely re-creates the parent directory as it sees fit.

That being the case, can’t you put your WordPress files in the directory DreamHost is serving your site from?
