Acme is omitting top-level-domain

Looking below at the output it shows that acme tries to connect to https://files.barlians instead of

My domain is:

I ran this command:
letsencrypt certonly -a webroot --webroot-path=/var/www/html/ -d

It produced this output:

The following errors were reported by the server:

Type: connection
Detail: Fetching https://files.barlians/.well-known/acme-challenge/311ktTrQMLXfaGy1Y7nvEvg3WNwoVwDLbvBY-iBnWbg: Error getting
validation data

web server: nginx version: nginx/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)

operating system: Ubuntu Linux 16.04.1

using unmanaged VPS

I can login to a root shell on my machine.

Using latest webmin (version 1.870), but it’s not used for updating certificates. certificates I update by ssh-commandline.

Let’s Encrypt is just following the redirect of your server.

For example:

$ curl -i
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Server: nginx
Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2017 21:48:18 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 178
Connection: keep-alive
Location: https://files.barlians/.well-known/acme-challenge/zzz

DAMN, I thought already I discovered a miracle :wink:

Thanks a lot, I still discovered a few other domains I had to fix.
Is working now!
