Hello, I'm having a lot of trouble getting my first certificate issued. Seems like I have things set up correctly (letsdebug.net passes both domains as "All OK!"), but certbot seems to be sending
GET / requests, getting the homepage, and then complaining that it's somehow "unauthorized" or "invalid".
Please help! I could probably install manually (maybe?), but I want to be sure that auto-renew will work properly.
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.
I ran this command:
sudo certbot certonly --webroot --dry-run -w /home/ec2-user/spaceengi -d spaceengi.com -d www.spaceengi.com
It produced this output:
