Certificate renew failing - Hashicorp vault


#1

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: vault.businessapplications.co.nz

I ran this command: sudo certbot renew --dry-run

It produced this output:

    your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
    firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the
    client. If you’re using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
    that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.

Hi @johnpaultthomas

you have a dns-entry vault.businessapplications.co.nz -> ip-address, this is good.

But my browser can’t connect your domain.

Is there a running webserver? Or a firewall that blocks?


#3

I am not running a webserver.But i just enabled a ngix webserver for test purpose.try again pls


#4

I need to disable this before running the cert renew again.Otherwise it will complain unable to use port 80


#5

As expected it was a firewall issue


#6

Yep, now you have a new certificate, created today.
