Certificate renewal failure

My domain is: test-api.pickleapp.in

I ran this command: sudo certbot renew --force-renewal

It produced this output: Attempting to renew cert (test-api.pickleapp.in) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/test-api.pickleapp.in.conf produced an unexpected error: Failed authorization procedure. test-api.pickleapp.in (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Fetching http://test-api.pickleapp.in/.well-known/acme-challenge/qrme6LuG-af0V9JS3DjRTUP-UYpo5nkMjY1RCEn7A4U: Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem).

Do you have a firewall in the way?


We are currently using an AWS EC2, but rather than a normal security group, we don't have a firewall.


I can't reach http://test-api.pickleapp.in/ either.
You will need to get that working before certbot can work.
Unless you are planning to always use certbot in --standalone mode.
