Enabling site default-ssl.
To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
  systemctl reload apache2
# service apache2 restart
# systemctl reload apache2

Now, when I open https://w.x.y.z in firefox, I get

Your connection is not secure

The owner of has configured their website improperly. To protect your information
from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

So, I have to click on advanced and then "add exception".Is that related to apache configuration?
By proceeding to visit the website, I think it switches to https again.

In Edge, I get

The hostname in the website’s security certificate differs from the website you are trying
to visit.

Since I am using IP address and the certificate is registered with a domain, I think that
is the root of the problem.
Am I right?
