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. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is:amusingattire.com
I ran this command: certbot --apache
It produced this output: cerbot failed to authenticate domain
My web server is (include version): apache 2.4.37
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): rocky linux 8
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: self
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): 1.22.0
i can ping my domain amussingattire.com and i can browse the http amusingattire.com but when i try to run certbot --apache for the domain i always get the same error message about the no a record or no aaaa record. i do have those records in my google domain setup.
i do have port 80 and 443 open and i did enable the selinux permissions that apache needs to get on the net.
i don't understand why the commands dont work if the http://amusingattire.com works and is running .
