Certificate create issue python timeout error

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: dtvapi2.xyz

I ran this command: ./certbot-auto certonly -a standalone -d dtvapi2.xyz

It produced this output: Traceback (most recent call last):

Hi @shailendra

Certbot waits that you add additional informations.

That times out. Read the Certbot output, there is a question you didn’t shared.

What kind of SSH client are you using?

There have been some reports that some clients do not play well with Certbot’s interactive mode.

Here, Certbot was waiting for you to enter your email address.

You need to type it in and press Return, or else run Certbot with the --register-unsafely-without-email flag.

(Assuming your SSH client is functioning correctly).

It’s probably better to provide your email, actually. Not sure why I suggested that other option. You could try:

./certbot-auto certonly -a standalone -d dtvapi2.xyz -m your@email.com --agree-tos
