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. https://crt.sh/?q=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: datacolaboratory.com
I ran this command:
sudo certbot renew --dry-run
It produced this output:
Attempting to renew cert (datacolaboratory.com) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/datacolaboratory.com.conf produced an unexpected error: Failed authorization procedure. www.datacolaboratory.com (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:serverInternal :: The server experienced an internal error :: Remote PerformValidation RPCs failed, datacolaboratory.com (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:serverInternal :: The server experienced an internal error :: Remote PerformValidation RPCs failed.
My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.18 (built: 2018-06-07T19:43:03)
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS (xenial)
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: My domain is parked through domains.google.com, but I host my site (DNS is from google).
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
I had run certbot renew previously a few months back and it had run fine (and it is in crontab). Now that the certificate is close to expiration, the crontab job is not working, and when I try to do it manually, the above error shows up for the dry-run. When I try
$: sudo certbot renew
the following message shows up:
Failed authorization procedure. datacolaboratory.com (tls-sni-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Timeout after connect (your server may be slow or overloaded), www.datacolaboratory.com (tls-sni-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Timeout after connect (your server may be slow or overloaded)
I tried with
https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory as the server, but no difference.
I have looked through the various answers provided to similar questions on this site, but none of them seem to address what I am running into. Bit stuck in trying to figure out how to troubleshoot further.
