I’m attempting to obtain SSL certificates manually via certbot for my local development environment on Windows 10. Since certbot doesn’t work on Windows (yet), I’m using certbot installed on WSL Ubuntu 18.04 to get the certificate. Here is the command I’m using:
sudo certbot certonly --standalone --preferred-challenges http -d <my_hostname>
However, I’m getting the following error message
An unexpected error occurred: Error creating new order :: Policy forbids issuing for name Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.
Please note that this development environment is on my Oracle laptop and the hostname is static and unique.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks & regards,
