Challenge works in browser, but getssl ACME client complains

I’m trying to successfully set up my domain with SSL using letsencrypt, getssl (bash acme client) and nginx on a linux host. I’m configuring everything manually, as I need to have full control over the nginx configuration.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output: Certificate on remote domain does not match, ignoring remote certificate
Registering account
Verify each domain
copying challenge token to /***/.well-known/acme-challenge/-_eh6w1_VmYcX0ECYgr_qy1ukDJZnhJWd74CGPFcFYw
getssl: for some reason could not reach - please check it manually

My web server is (include version):
nginx version: nginx/1.13.3
TLS SNI support enabled

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

Try set SKIP_HTTP_TOKEN_CHECK to true. Might just be a case of the server can’t access the URL locally, which can be safely ignored under some circumstances.


Thanks! that was indeed the issue!
