    There's generally 3 ways of setting up HTTPS SSL certificate for Centmin Mod Nginx HTTP/2 based HTTPS. Did you set LETSENCRYPT_DETECT='y' in persisent config file /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc before running centmin.sh menu option 22 ? For wordpress auto installer, you actually need a read method 2 to enable LETSENCRYPT_DETECT='y' then run centmin.sh menu option 22 which will detect letsencrypt support and display the additional letsencrypt prompts required to issue free letsencrypt ssl certificates for wordpress auto installer

    Method 1. The traditional way via centmin.sh menu option 2, 22 and selecting yes to self-signed ssl certificates first. Then converting the self-signed ssl certificate to paid or free (Letsencrypt) web browser trusted SSL certificates outlined at How to switch self-signed SSL certificate to paid SSL certificate ? You would still need to follow the same steps outlined at Nginx SPDY SSL Configuration for obtaining and purchasing the paid SSL certificate and most important part is the concatenation of the SSL provider provided filesto create the mentioned /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/domaincom/ssl-unified.crt and /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/domaincom/ssl-trusted.crtfiles referenced in your Nginx SSL vhost config file.

    You may need to also decide if you want to enable HTTP to HTTPS redirect outlined at How to force redirect from HTTP:// to HTTPS:// ?

    If you didn't answer yes at time of initial nginx vhost creation to self-signed ssl certificates, you can manually setup the self-signed ssl certificate via the vhost generator by checking self-signed ssl box and enter a domain name. This will outline instructions for manually creating and setting up self-signed ssl certificate and nginx vhost settings. Then for web browser trusted ssl certificates you switch follow - How to switch self-signed SSL certificate to paid SSL certificate ?.

    Method 2. Using and testing Centmin Mod 123.09beta01's new addons/acmetool.sh addon which is still in beta testing only for integrating Letsencrypt SSL certificates. And has both auto and manual methods.

    Method 3. Fully manual method for free Letsencrypt SSL certificates.
    If SSL cert exists but get no secure, then it most likely is mixed content issue. If you have mixed content issu, you need to adjust your web app and/or web site style itself see What Is Mixed Content? - KeyCDN Support

    not for same domain if it already exists, re-running centmin.sh menu option 2 or 22 will abort and not proceed until you remove existing domain name.

    Every centmin.sh menu option 22 run has an accompanying uninstall script at /root/tools/wp_uninstall_${vhostname}.sh where ${vhostname} = your domain name. You can run that to uninstall almost everything except mysql database which you have to manually remove yourself - extra precaution in case you accidentally run the wrong uninstall script.

    Then re-run centmin.sh menu option 22 to install fresh wordpress instance for the domain
