Check domain status after Rate Limit Duration due to Validation Failure

I have to renew a certificate in zimbra I used

but certbot by some reason doesn’t create the folder on /opt/zimbra/nginx/html/.well-known/acme-challenge , I think is a bug says going write in /opt/zimbra/nginx/html/.well-known/acme-challenge but nothing , now I had created the directory /opt/zimbra/nginx/html/.well-known/acme-challenge but hit Limit Duration due to Validation Failure.
Where I can check what is the first time that certification validation failed ? I’m in stress since this is a production server


Hi @serjux,

You could look in /var/log/letsencrypt; there should be a separate log file for each time that Certbot was run. One of the earlier log files might show the real error.

The rate limit for validation failures will reset after one hour, so you can try again if you fix the problem (or use --dry-run to test against the staging server instead).
