Certbot failed to authenticate some domains

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:kalevent.com

I ran this command: docker-compose logs certbot

It produced this output: Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: webroot). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
kalevent-certbot-1 | Domain: kalevent.com
kalevent-certbot-1 | Type: connection
kalevent-certbot-1 | Detail: Fetching http://kalevent.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/QYFuX6uNkZ_HQ37BKz7GV1XJltFY-7qMXwlOuC6oGKw: Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem)

My web server is (include version): nginx version: nginx/1.25.3

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Linux - kubernetes cluster

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: amazon web services

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 2.7.4

Hi @k0f1, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

The HTTP ACME challenge requests must reach [the ACME client within] your server.


It was until i removed godadday A records leaving aws A record only. I am currently waiting for update of these records before making another attempt
