I had built a wordpress site on my local host (wamp) and then uploaded to my server with sftp and used phpmyadmin to upload database. I changed over the dns in my registrar and waited for it to propagate. At one point the website was available and now it isn't.

All browsers are giving me the following notice:
my domain has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.
I am seeing these errors when checking my auto ssl logs for the domain in question in WHM.
2:56:06 AM ERROR TLS Status: Defective
Certificate expiry: 9/29/23, 3:12 AM UTC (363.72 days from now)
ERROR Defect: OPENSSL_VERIFY: The certificate chain failed OpenSSL’s verification (0:18:DEPTH_ZERO_SELF_SIGNED_CERT)
Anyone have any ideas why this is occurring? None of the other domains on my server are experiencing this.

I was able to fix it for my browser (chrome) by typing: chrome://net-internals/#hsts into the address bar and adding my domain to the bottom text field and clicking delete.
But I am concerned if everyone is going to have to do this no one will bother and not see my site or google may penalize it.

Okay after checking everything again this morning, it seems that I had auto ssl checked in my features package but not ssl by itself.

I checked that box also and went to manage auto ssl>>manage users and checked the enable ssl box (reset to feature list setting was originally checked) for that domain and clicked the "Check domain" button and all started working again with no errors.

This thread can be marked as resolved.
