Hi … newbie here. I have read several posts here and need some clarification.
My situation is that our server is running apache vhosts on port 8006 behind a firewall that doesnt allow port 80 traffic to that server.
Running “certbot --apache” ends with error message
"Unable to find a virtual host listening on port 80 which is currently needed for Certbot to prove to the CA that you control your domain. Please add a virtual host for port 80. "
So is there a way for me to make this happen ? I can place any file in the webserver in any location - that is under my control and so this is my preferred method and so I am hoping for some command line option to accept port 8006.
As for the DNS verification method - our DNS provider is dyn.com and i dont see a dns-plugin for them but even so their support is very sluggish ( they take weeks to reply to an email ) and so that could be a dead end.
Thanks JuergenAuer … I think i better stick to this port 80 concept. Ultimately it needs port 80 only for validation yes ? After that , i can switch back to port 8006 after the validation is complete ?
Or must i switch to port 80 every time i have to renew the cert ?
