Authorization failed (error 400)

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.

Hi @digitalosaurus

checking your domain you have created the wrong entries - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=stinner-it.com#txt

You have created

_acme-challenge.stinner-it.com.stinner-it.com

so the menu you use adds stinner-it.com.

Create only two entries with

_acme-challenge
_acme-challenge.www

Compare it with

Your wrong marked entries should be empty.

Hi,
thank you for the quick response, but I tried again and got;

Invalid response from https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/authz-v3/1811600342.

I mean, I am worried because I could reissue an certificate some months ago, I wonder why it doesnt work this time?

There is a newer check of your domain - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=stinner-it.com#txt

Now you have removed the wrong entries. So the three tested wrong entries are green.

But the correct domain names are empty -> nothing found.

ns15.domaincontrol.com is your name server you have to change, that’s from GoDaddy.

Did you create the required entries manual? Is your Plesk able to talk with your GoDaddy name server?

How did you remove these wrong entries?
