Hello pmoon1010,

Thank you for your question regarding an invalid certificate error. When I test your SSL it is showing a "Self-signed" error message. This indicates the SSL was not issued, or installed correctly. If you purchased the SSL, it should be signed by an authority such as Comodo. If you have not purchased an SSL, you can use the FreeSSL, which is issued by Comodo.

Thank you,

Thank you for your prompt answer!
I installed the FreeSSL via AMP, however the url of my browsers, when accessed via https, is instantly changed to "Not Secure | https: ('https' double crossed)". What am I missing here?

Hi pmoon1010,

It appears that is showing a Secure Connection from the Google Chrome browser I'm using. Are you still seeing an issue with the insecure warning?

It took some time for https to work. It is working now! Thank you!
