Certbot Verification Issue (Challenge failed for domain)

Hi,

I’m installing certificate using:

sudo certbot --nginx -d certbot.ddnsking.com

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator nginx, Installer nginx
Starting new HTTPS connection (1): acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org
Obtaining a new certificate
Performing the following challenges:
http-01 challenge for certbot.ddnsking.com
Waiting for verification…
Challenge failed for domain certbot.ddnsking.com
http-01 challenge for certbot.ddnsking.com
Cleaning up challenges
Some challenges have failed.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

I guess the problem is with /.well-known/acme-challenge/14p-Zi4UV83zsePM5dPRGlikyo7ZyXjeViefLDatdlg availability (cause it’s not available)…

The log file is uploaded to privnote:

Please advise if any possible solution is available. Thank you.

Hi @CEBEP

looks like your vHost configuration is buggy. Checking your domain a wrong certificate is used - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=certbot.ddnsking.com

What says

nginx -T

Every combination of port and domain name must be unique. Or a vHost definition is wrong, so the vHost isn’t used.

There you see your problem.

Looks buggy - no listen, not the list of domains you use in your command -> Certbot can’t find the correct vHost -> one of the other vHosts is used.

PS: Looks like you have created that vHost manual.

Dear Juergen, thank you for your help and time. I have no idea how I managed to remove virtual host from nginx config. All works smoothly. Thank you once again.
