My domain is: app.dailynclexchallenge.com
I ran this command: sudo /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto certonly -d app.dailynclexchallenge.com --webroot -w /var/www/html
It produced this output: Cleaning up challenges
Some challenges have failed.

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: AWS
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): no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 1.1.0
It appears that the script doesn’t create a .well-known or acme-challenge directory, nor does it create the random file it checks, and thus generates a 404.
As to the insult to injury, now apparently because of the script failures I have hit Let’s Encrypt’s rate limit (which seems a bit wonky, since I’m not actually successfully creating a certificate,) and thus I cannot continue testing.
Not to sound like an old curmudgeon, but can’t a fella get a download of the certificate vs. jumping through certbot land, at least as a temporary fix?
How very frustrating.
