Auto SSL DCV Error

My domain is:

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: mediatemple

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): Cpanel

The other domains on same server have got the Let’s Encrypt certificate but this domain is not able to get that. Here is the error from the log:

DNS DCV: The DNS query to “” for the DCV challenge returned no “TXT” record that matches the value “_cpanel-dcv-test-record=OY66MG198mmW2iNMRN2b1cXwMT6hXIGhVS_tslSLtEdv9vqu3MntraWIYg0DAdkW”.; HTTP DCV: The system queried for a temporary file at “”, but the web server responded with the following error: 404 (Not Found). A DNS (Domain Name System) or web server misconfiguration may exist.

Issue got sorted.

Added this line in htaccess:
RewriteRule ^.well-known/ - [L,NC]
