Hello all,

I have used cloudflare free SSL origin certificate. Now I want to use Brotli compression, it's not supports cloudflare origin certificate. So today I try to switch to letsencrypt. Now I'm getting this error even if I manually removed each sites privkey.key and fullchain.pem file paths in configurations. Are there any better solution to correct this error (i used this tutorial to install cloudflare ssl keys).

root@server:~# sudo site mydomain.com -ssl=on

SSL is already enabled for your site - mydomain.com

Then I try to remove SSL certificate by using following method, but it's not working too.

root@server:~# sudo site mydomain.com -ssl=off -revoke=on


  certbot [SUBCOMMAND] [options] [-d DOMAIN] [-d DOMAIN] ...

Certbot can obtain and install HTTPS/TLS/SSL certificates.  By default,

it will attempt to use a webserver both for obtaining and installing the


certbot: error: argument --cert-path: No such file or directory

SSL Cert for your site mydomain.com has been completely removed and revoked!

SSL has been successfully disabled for your site - mydomain.com

root@server:~# sudo site mydomain.com -ssl=on

SSL is already enabled for your site - mydomain.com

I don't really know what you did or what you're trying to do, but:

  1. SSL=ON is saying that some cert is configured in your site Nginx Conf file, that's why Webinoly say that is "already enabled".
  2. SSL=OFF throw an error because can not find the Let's Encrypt cert.pem file, seems like you have removed it manually.
  3. Seems like you have removed the original SSL Webinoly code from your site Nginx conf file and now is corrupted.

Thank you for your early reply.

When I installed Webinoly on my Ubuntu server (18.04), I didn’t enable Letsencrypt for my WordPress sites. I only used Cloudflare origin certificate. Therefore, I think there’s no any letsencrypt SSL certificates on my server (if I’m wrong please correct me). I simply generated private key and origin certificate from Cloudflare site and placed them inside the Nginx installed directory separate folder. Then I added each site private key and origin certificate path in each sites configuration file. That’s I have done.

I try to fix this issue by running “sudo webinoly -uninstall” and reinstall webinoly, but no luck.

If my server Webinoly corrupted, are there any possibility to correct it without losing WordPress installation and its data?

Just remove the code you manually added to Nginx and everything should work fine after that.

As I said before, you have an SSL cert configured in your site Nginx conf file, that you added it manually.

Thank you so much your support.

Earlier I commented nginx SSL configuration, i think that's it not working. Now I completely removed all the SSL configuration and it worked.

Again thanks for the support.
