Certificate for freepbx

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:grahome@ralphgraham.org

I ran this command:
certificate update
It produced this output:
My web server is (include version):
freepbx, all worked for 2 years no problem
installed unifi USG gateway and with port 80 forwarded unable to renew
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

Can you be a little bit more detailed; perhaps show us a picture of the menu choice.

Sorry rg305 there is no menu to show. The letsencrypt certificate is on my freepbx server. It is giving a warning that an update failed. I have not had this problem before. When I click on update certificate button the message is certificate failed.
The only chnage I have made is to install a Unifi USG gateway. I have set a port forward rule for port 80.
I do not know what else to try.

Hi @RalphGraham

that's not a domain name.

Ah, now http://ralphgraham.org/ answers (earlier checked, timeout).

But what's that?


Not Found [CFN #0005]

Is this a freepbx answer? Or is it a USG answer?

First would be good (correct port forward). Second would be bad.

PS: Checked your domain via https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=ralphgraham.org#ct-logs

There is no older certificate.

Looks like it's your first certificate you want to create.

PPS: Ah - https://crt.sh/?q=ralphgraham.org - only subdomains, that's the reason.

grahome.ralphgraham.org has older certificates.

Checked your subdomain - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=grahome.ralphgraham.org - there you see the problem.

Your www version isn't relevant, that's a message from your hoster.

But your non-www has a timeout.

So you main domain has the correct answer, your subdomain has a wrong configuration.

A http status 200 or 404 (/.well-known/acme-challenge/random-filename) is expected.

Someone on freepbx community has suggested moving to dns-1 but does not say how to do that, any suggestions please?

You have to fix the timeout. Then you can use http validation.

Compare your main domain and your subdomain. First works, second not.

Sorry to be ignorant but I need more detail for your last response.
Are you saying to have certificate for grahome.ralphgraham.org I need also a certificate for the main domain as well?
How do I fix timeout and how do I use http validation?
Many thanks
