I installed Let's Encrypt but my site doesn't open via https

Probably you haven't redirected your site to open through https and it defaults to http.

If you want to force your entire website to go through https, you can add these rules to your .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
