Certificate Validation LighSail



  • Editing my question.

On LightSail I created a certificate and got two values to be configured as a CNAME for validation. I have a public hosted zone on Amazon Route53 (public domain). Now my question is do I need to create a hosted a DNS zone with the same domain name that is hosted on Route53 and create the CNAME records there on LightSail or do I create the CNAME records on Route53 or on both?* The problem I am getting is the progress is stuck on "validating...."

Any suggestions please?

Thank you. ----------------------------------------------------------------- The SSL certificate validation is taking ages on Validating state I am using Lightsail and I have done the below configurations. I configured wp-config.php file correctly to use https. This is the running configuration

define('WP_SITEURL', 'https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . '/'); define('WP_HOME', 'https://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . '/'); if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_CLOUDFRONT_FORWARDED_PROTO']) && $_SERVER['HTTP_CLOUDFRONT_FORWARDED_PROTO'] === 'https') { $_SERVER['HTTPS'] = 'on';

I have a domain hosted on Route53 and I created a CNAME for both ( and But the SSL still not validated now its more than 12 hours.

Any ideas? Thanks.
