I just started with CertBot today, I am running an EC2 instance of Bitnami and Automaticc’s WordPress Machine image.
My domain is: dudedope.com
I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --webroot
It produced this output: when it asked for the directory i provided the (/var/www) directory which http-01 challenge for dudedope.com
Input the webroot for dudedope.com: (Enter ‘c’ to cancel): /var/www
Waiting for verification…
