Certificate renewal 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.

Hello, any insights on this issue??

Hi @chandrajonnala

Letsencrypt sees a redirect http -> https.

But checking your domain there is no such redirect - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=test.talkpool.io

https doesn’t work.

Looks like your configuration is buggy, so Certbot doesn’t understand it.

And your 0.23 is too old.

  • Update your certbot
