Hi… i’m pulling my hair out with certbot. Can anyone help…as as far as i can see verything should be working. tower.wilmo.uk is a cname of my ddns.
if i dig tower.wilmo.uk i get all the right data.
if i manually visit: http://tower.wilmo.uk i get a response…
and the certbot directories necessary: http://tower.wilmo.uk/.well-known/acme-challenge/here.html
Certbot keeps complaining that it can;'t connect to the ‘qYzf0b4CQK5gEoxI7cKuBxZttQDESDMrz8w4OBXVafo’ subdirectory which is expected as I can;t set up that directory structure before as i have no idea what the string will be. Isn’t certbot supposed to make those files itself?
My domain is:
tower.wilmo.uk (cname of my ddns)
I ran this command:
It produced this output:
Failed authorization procedure. tower.wilmo.uk (http-01): urn:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Fetching http://tower.wilmo.uk/.well-known/acme-challenge/qYzf0b4CQK5gEoxI7cKuBxZttQDESDMrz8w4OBXVafo: Timeout
