Hi there,

I haven't looked at any of the documentation you linked to, but on
first glance:

that filename

> gd_bundle.crt  site.pem  Site.crt  Site.csr

and that last filename

are not the same. Suggest you either rename the .key file, or put the
right spelling in your .conf file.

Good luck with it,
