Sorry in advance if this is a dumb question, I can't seem to figure out how to add a domain name to a D7 site, (currently using an IP). The website is hosted on digitalocean, the new domain is from namescheap, and the site is Drupal v 7.41.
(The end goal is to apply a letsencrypt ssl certificate to the website, which is not possible without a domain name - so if anyone has better advice than bothering with the domain please let me know! SSL was implemented by following this step-by-step guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-apache-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-16-04)
The new domain has been added to digitaloceanl, and I've changed the
$base_url variable in
settings.php to the new domain. Trying to reach the site by the new domain returns the following Privacy Error warning:
And running tests on the ssl certificate return "MISMATCH,"
Both of which seem to imply the new domain is not working properly.
Not sure what other information to supply, so if anyone has a suggestion please let me know!
