    I am starting this as a new thread as the other one was related to installation of let's encrypt.
    Now that the let's encrypt is working fine, I am still not able to create SSL using let's encrypt for domain
    It is creating a rollback and a file in site available as apache fails to start.
    The certificate is being created in SSL folder of the web folder file, which I have checked.
    What is causing problem for specific to , I am not able to make out as its looks quite similar to other vhost file for which certificate is created.
    However I am attaching the file

    The attached config file looks fine. The most likely reason is that letsencrypt did not create the SSL certs and in that case, apache rejects the config and it get saved with .err extension.

    Check that thes e files exist and and that the key and crt file contain a valid ssl key and ssl cert:

    Yes Till
    All the files are there in the SSL folder path you mentioned.
    What else can I check?
    On viewing the files file
    it shows
    Private RSA Key
    Strength 2048bits

    Algorithm: RSA
    Size: 2048
    SHA1: 4A F4 B6 FB 60 B7 E6 8D DA 89 F1 D1 86 02 9D F9 20 30 A4 CB
    SHA256: 4B 9D 14 1B 18 16 28 2F 29 A6 0A 95 A7 96 D3 F4 23 E5 74 5A AE C5 8D 0D 17 DA 88 50 B7 B8 C5 B9

    The files can be there but it is possible that the ssl key and cert don't belong together so that apache can not open the cert by using that key file. Remove the .err file extension from the vhost.err file and restart apache to see the error that it throws with this config.

    Can I remove those files and try to generate the certificate afresh.
    And if there is still problem, check the apache error?

    Okay problem resolved.
    You are right Till, It is very likely that there is some mismatch in the certificate.
    I have deleted all files in
    and all files related in in
    and regenerated the certificate.
    It is working now fine.
