Challenge failed for domain

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: beamsbuildinginspections.com.au

I ran this command:
following the steps from (https://brandviser.com.au/how-to-install-ssl-on-wordpress-lightsail/)
all is fine until I get to this command (/home/bitnami/letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto certonly -w /home/bit
nami/apps/wordpress/htdocs -d beamsbuildinginspections.com.au -d www.beamsbuildinginspectio
ns.com.au)

It produced this output:

Only Grade V. Looks like a blocking firewall.

That’s an Amazon Server:

There are firewall settings. A working port 80 is required. Looks like your server is closed.
