Common Name Error

Just created a Certificate for my website
I can access pages in the root folder no problem, but as soon as I try and access the wordpress side of the site which is in a subfolder i get:
This was working before I updated the certificate.
Would this be a Word Press/ htaaccess issue or would it be a certificate issue?


Hi Steve,

The most common reason would be that you have a cert for but you are accessing instead and that isn’t included in the cert, in which case you should add that other hostname in as well. There can be other reasons but it’s hard to tell without a domain to check.

You mentioned you updated the certificate but not if you have gone from one method of getting a certificate to another. Which webserver are you using for Wordpress, is it IIS, Apache or nginx? I’d assume it’s IIS but you mentioned htaccess which would be Apache.
