My parent domain is "martekservers.com", which is locally hosted via a Domain controller based on Windows Server 2008. I am creating a NextCloud instance with the intention of it not being visible on the internet, but usable on the local domain with a domain name via IPv4 called "nextcloud.martekservers.com", otherwise I would assign it a domain name via bluehost.
I ran "certbot --apache". It prompts me to select the domain to give SSL/HTTPS, I select "nextcloud.martekservers.com".
- The following errors were reported by the server:
My web server is Apache version 2.4.41, running on an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and as previously stated, the Domain Controller is on Windows Server 2008. I am also an administrator of this network.
NextCloud, as far as I'm aware, doesn't have a control panel for DNS issues.
I am using Certbot 0.40.0.
Notes on issue:
1.) I have gone into the server, and manually edited DNS. I created a Host (A) forward lookup zone for the Ubuntu server. It is registered on the network as a static IP of 192.168.1.38, and it has two CNAMEs, one being nextcloud.martekservers.com, and one being openoffice.martekservers.com (the goal is to run both on one box, openoffice will also need an SSL certificate, though if I can figure out the nextcloud issue, I can figure that out as well.)
2.) I have also created a PTR record that points 192.168.1.38 to the Ubuntu server.
3.) For whatever reason, Ubuntu most definitely does not play as nicely with my domain controller as the windows boxes I have connected to the domain. Everything regarding DNS has been manually set since the day I installed Linux onto that box.
