Hello. My domain is jcouncil.net. I have nginx 1.13.1, I’m managing it via WinSCP. I have no ACME client (or at least I don’t know which one there is and where the previous site owner put it, and I have no contact with him), I have no root access, I can’t change server configuration.
I try to renew the sertificate via https://www.sslforfree.com. I’ve created .well-known/acme-challenge directory and uploaded the files, but I get 404 error when I try to access them.
I DON’T get 404 error when I:
- put files in .well-known directly
- put files that have extensions in .well-known/acme-challenge directory.
So there’s something wrong precisely with extensionless files in .well-known/acme-challenge directory, but I honestly don’t know what. Google didn’t really help me, as most of the advices mention certbot or changing server configuration, and I don’t have access to any of it.
What can I do with my current access level?
