The fact that your certificate is not issued for the domain you’re trying to secure is a deal breaker. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?


Now you should be able to see the files.

Now I wonder whether this may be the reason for my problem as well? - Or do we find another clou?


If your certificate does not match the actual domain, it will never work. You can buy a single cert that covers multiple domains. Or you can use things like wildcard certs from LetsEncrypt. But that’s the first thing you need to resolve before looking at anything else.
