  1. I followed the instruction, but I have an error:

    The requested URL / was not found on this server. That’s all we know."
    what may be the error?
    do I need to make something on my domain name platform "namecheap"

  2. Here is the error i get for

    Error: Server Error

    The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.

    Please try again in 30 seconds.

  3. How does this affect Cloudflare? Do i need to change the IPV4 address to the forwarding IPV4 address?

  4. cuando cambio la ip y apunto hacia el balanceo de cargas en mi dns , el backend me da error 🙁

  5. Please help, I've tried setting up the load balancer twice now as you show here and it doesn't work. It keeps indicating that the backend is unhealthy. I've checked both of the "allow HTTP(S) traffic" boxes in my wordpress VM and even created a special firewall rule as they indicate in the troubleshooting article by google, but no luck.

    I'm running out of solutions, if anyone could help I'd be greatly appreciated.

  6. I created a SSL certificate for a wordpress hosted website on Google Platform using your method. Although it works, when I login to WordPress admin it still states there is no valid SSL certificate, and not all images are showing on the site. I've tried plugins like really simple SSL bit still it doesn't work. Any suggestions?

  7. Pretty complicated. Mine didn't work because I was using a dnynamic dns name and they don't allow you to change the dns server list. I didn't need a load balancer because I only have one instance. I mean it was good presentation but didn't really fit my needs. So I came away with nothing. So I was pretty pumped at the beginning but as it went on and especially when I had to create my own dns zone thats where it really fizzled out. But I wondered could I have just used a google name ? I don't really like dynamic dns but it is cheap and for most of the world cheap is important, definitely true in my case.

  8. Hey Macgyver, thanks for your tutorial. Wanted to check on procedure for subdomain. can same google managed certificated created at the time of the Loadbancers can be used for Subdomains?
    Kindly suggest

  9. Hi! Please, tell how to allow HTTP & HTTPS Traffic in a Firewall, if those options are freeze
    Thank you!

  10. For anyone having an issue with VM instance drop down greyed out: You need to set the "Zone" of the instance group to the same zone as the zone of the VM you want to add. Example, if the Vm was created in zone "us-central1-a", then the instance group will also need the zone drop down to select "us-central1-a" as the option.

  11. I am crying…. im trying to create instance group as u did, and even though I have my own VM Instance running ok…. GCP is not allowing my console to add my instance to a group thru the unmanaged group,… because it says: "there are no VM instances available" but I do have one!!! don't know why I can not use the only one I have to create a group 🙁

  12. While creating Instance group, I have selected unmanaged still Unable to select VM instance showing no instance available

  13. thanks for your video, if it is not a static website, a nodejs server uses some database as mysql or redis, will it work well ?

  14. stuck at creating instance group, it says no available vm instances. well my wordpress website is installed and running

  15. Thank It work very well. I have to ask you something
    I work with websocket previously, I use certbot-auto it auto generate a cert-ket likes "fullchain.pem" and "privkey.pem".
    And using "websocket" via SSL It have to push the cert-key like "node websocket.js -s -c full chain.pem and -k privacy.pem -p 1234" something like that. 
    And I can access the socket via

    I try to solve like "Don't use ssl setup like node websocket -p 1234to frontend. I don't know lol.

    The stupid question is "how do I get the fullchaim.pem and privkey.pem from load balancer ?" or It not working like that. I have no idea. Thank you.


  16. If I'm getting an error like the following in Chrome, what might the problem be? uses an unsupported protocol.
    Unsupported protocol
    The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite.

  17. Hi Macgyver, thanks for the video! I can't install the certificate because I am having the following problem. I already have a VM instance, I use Bitnami, but I can't create the group because on the "VM Instance" option it shows me the message "No available instance". Would you help me with this?

  18. When i creating the instance group it doesn't allow me to add the only instance I have. I finished the whole process and it didn't work for me. Can somebody help me?

  19. Hi Everyone here is very easy method for wordpress installation,SSL,filemanager,MySQL ,phpmyadmin everything without going through command and SSH stuff on Google Cloud .If you wan't to learn just reply me

  20. Amazing tutorial. Question. Do you need a domain to be able to use this? I have a couple of test VM's that I only have IP addresses for them and no domain. I tried to do this for those VM's but it didn't let me create the certificate. How could I do this for those types of machines?

  21. It does take time for the certificate to be provided.
    Is that why the page is getting load with an 404 error?
    I have seen in part part 2 you said it took you 30 minutes for the ssl certificate to be provided that might also be what other people may have experienced but didn't find any concrete answer yet.

  22. Can you please make a tutorial on this "Setting up HTTP-to-HTTPS redirect for external HTTP(S) load balancers"

  23. Having 404 error, and my load balancer health check is "unhealthy" after following the complete tutorial. I am using IIS to host my sites on VM instance. My VM initally had static IP. Should I change it to Ephemeral? Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
