I have an EC2 instance with Amazon Linux running an Apache web server.
I have an ACM SSL certificate issued. (I want to use it for a sub domain so I have set it up using *.mydomain.com and it has been issued)
I have setup an applicaiton load balancer with listners on port
443 open. I have attached the SSL Certificate to it.
I have setup my target group that contains my EC2 instance. I have setup forwarding on port
80 as per AWS documentation.
As far as I undertand, the only thing left for me to do is to point my domain which is hosted through GoDaddy at my Load Balancer. I found a tutorial that said to create an
A record set to
Alias and add the
DNS Namefor my Load Balancer as the
value. When I do this, it tells me that I cannot have the
A record because I have already got one setup but that is for my sub domain. I am doing this through Route 53.
When I give the
A record a different name; for example,
lb.test.example.com it does not connect to HTTP on the domain
test.example.com. When I type in
lb.test.example.com, I get the browser winging that the site is not secure and then a
Bad Gateway error.
What am I missing here?
