I am seeing lot of SSL errors after enabling SSL for my site. Following is the common error related to the SSL configuration:

AH01797: client denied by server configuration: /var/www/xxxxxx/.well-known

Is this something related to any settings in our Drupal folder like creating ".well-known" folder or adjusting .htaccess settings or is it related to the Apache settings?

That folder is needed by LetsEncrypt and is nothing to do with Drupal. For some details elsewhere on the SO network see https://serverfault.com/questions/796745/letsencrypt-do-i-need-to-keep-well-known-accessible-for-certificate-renewal

  • Ok. So, Can I ignore those error messages or if I create that folder in my root Drupal installation, what files should I add in that folder?

  • Please keep this site for questions about Drupal only, there are other resources out there for unrelated questions. Thanks
