Apache plugin stopped working

Hello together!

At trying to get a certificate for a new domain I ran into trouble. Somehow the apache plugin has a problem recovering the temporary checkpoint files.
I spend quite some time looking online for solutions and reverted all my apache conf back to the supposed “working state”, but to no avail.
I would be very grateful for someone to nudge me in the right direction!

My domain is:


I ran this command:

certbot -vvv --apache

It produced this output:
