Auto renew failing


#1

I have letsencrypt setup on a server for testing. I have apache setup to forward all http traffic to https. Unfortunately letsencrypt renewal script attempts to renew the certificate with a http request and fails. Can someone give me an idea of how I can address this? Thanks!


#2

letsencrypt should follow the forwards. What specific error are you getting on renewal ?


#3

404 error

Why does the forum require 20 characters? Had to type this to get the answer posted…odd?


#4

if you add a file in your webroot/.well-known/acme-challenge/test

can you reach it in your browser at yourdomain/.well-known/acme-challenge/test ?


#5

Typically, something like curl -i http://example.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/test will show you where things go wrong with the redirect (sometimes, it’s a missing / in the rewrite, etc.)
