Connecting Zapier to Ubuntu Apache Mysql server - SSL errors using Godaddy SSL Certificate

I’m trying to Connect Zapier to my Mysql database hosted on an Ubuntu server with a LAMP stack. My SSL certificate is from Godaddy. It looks like I have all the right files - SSL Client Certificate, SSL Private Key, SSL CA Bundle - but I am still getting certificate errors. My URL is and I’ve done the Qualys labs test and I get a B overall rating. Any ideas what I could be missing? As far as I could tell, the SSL Client Certificate and SSL CA Bundle came from Godaddy, and the SSL Private Key came from my server - it is the apache2ssl.key file. These are the three files as they are listed in my default.conf file
SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/SSL/cert/ce531f28030cd4fe.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/SSL/private/apache2ssl.key
    SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/apache2/SSL/cert/gd_bundle-g2-g1.crt
Any help would be appreciated

I had a very similar problem.

While I'm not certain this will be helpful for you, I can share how I addressed the issue.I only filled out the 'SSL Private Key' field and left the 'SSL Client Certificate' and 'SSL CA Bundle' fields empty.

I obtained my SSL certificate from Zero SSL.The configuration likely depends on the certificate authority.
