Apache 2.4.46 Misconfigured

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:openaccount.nhsec.co.id

I ran this command:certbot-auto, certbot --apache

It produced this output:
Error in checking parameter list:
The apache plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: MisconfigurationError('Apache is unable to check whether or not the module is loaded because Apache is misconfigured.')

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.2.46

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Centos 8.0.1905

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):Yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):No

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
certbot 1.9.0

How are you using Apache 2.2 on CentOS 8? How did you install it?

The specific command Certbot is complaining about is:

apachectl -t -D DUMP_MODULES; echo $?

OK, thanks.

What does the command I included in my last post show? Is the exit code zero?

That apachectl vs httpd difference explains the Certbot error.

The version of httpd that comes from CentOS 8 base repos is 2.4.37, and apachectl still works with that package.

It looks like with the httpd 2.4.46 package you installed from somewhere else, the apachectl version of the command doesn't work anymore.

Can you share where you installed that version from? Maybe we can get Certbot fixed to support it as well.

In the meantime, you'll probably have to not use the Apache plugin and just use --webroot and manually configure the certificate.
