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: United States COVID-19 Tracker
I ran this command: certbot certonly --force-renew -d www.uscovidtracker.net -v
It produced this output:
Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: apache). The Certificate Authority reported these problems: Domain: uscovidtracker.net Type: unauthorized Detail: Invalid response from http://uscovidtracker.net/.well-known/acme-challenge/w77LLWX0nl0ia1d8YLEqSwFcmFdA9P6MEe-G-Ms8zaM [22.214.171.124]: "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"iso-8859-1\"?>\n<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN\"\n \"http://www."

Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary Apache configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure that the listed domains point to this Apache server and that it is accessible from the internet. Some challenges have failed. Ask for help or search for solutions at https://community.letsencrypt.org. See the logfile /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

Hi there again! This post is nearly identical to one that I submitted a little under three months ago (see here). I had a productive exchange there which resolved my issue, and since that point I haven't done anything to modify my configuration.
Almost three months later my cert is about to expire, and I'm trying to renew it but having the same issue all over again. I was hoping that it would auto renew, but the bot sent me an email today saying that the cert is about to expire.
This is a Django website that I serve off my Raspberry Pi (i.e. completely self-hosted).
The output of
certbot certificates is:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Found the following certs: Certificate Name: uscovidtracker.net Serial Number: 4a4953d793c33b0cc3687767ad5d02d70f0 Key Type: RSA Domains: uscovidtracker.net www.uscovidtracker.net Expiry Date: 2021-09-23 15:03:56+00:00 (VALID: 3 days) Certificate Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/uscovidtracker.net/fullchain.pem Private Key Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/uscovidtracker.net/privkey.pem - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Any insight, and especially insight as to how I can prevent this again, would be appreciated. Thanks!
