CloudFront does not show my web page with HTTPS


Hello, community.

I have a web page running on Ec2. I also have my hosted zone on Route 53. I created my AWS public SSL certificate pointing to * I added the certificate record to my hosted zone. I created a CloudFront Distribution (HTTP redirect to HTTPS), origin: Ec2 public DNS and associated the certificate here. I also created a A record on Route 53 pointing to the distribution name. When I navigate to distribution name or my domain name my web page shows without HTTPS (not secure). I cleaned the cache and nothing.

I need your help with this.

  • Hi, GK. I had done this. I do not know what else I can do.


  • Try using in command line with curl

  • ubuntu@server:/etc/apache2/sites-available$ curl

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" ""> <HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <TITLE>ERROR: The request could not be satisfied</TITLE> </HEAD><BODY> <H1>403 ERROR</H1> <H2>The request could not be satisfied.</H2> <HR noshade size="1px"> Bad request.

When I connect to, the certificate looks fine but it comes up with "CloudFront wasn't able to connect to the origin". So the issue isn't with CloudFront's "front-end" and your site certificate, it's with your configuration of your origin providing content.
