Checklist for getting started hosting multiple domains


#1

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:
michaelblack.photography
lafamillenoire.com

I ran this command:
sudo certbot --apache

It produced this output:
Which names would you like to activate HTTPS for?-------------------------------------------------------------------------------1: lafamillenoire.com
2: www.lafamillenoire.com
3: michaelblack.photography
4: www.michaelblack.photography

Select the appropriate numbers separated by commas and/or spaces, or leave input
blank to select all options shown (Enter ‘c’ to cancel):


You have an existing certificate that contains a portion of the domains yourequested (ref: /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/lafamillenoire.com.conf)

It contains these names: lafamillenoire.com

You requested these names for the new certificate: lafamillenoire.com,
www.lafamillenoire.com, michaelblack.photography, www.michaelblack.photography.

Do you want to expand and replace this existing certificate with the new
certificate?

IMPORTANT NOTES:

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.18

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): 16.04.4

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: a box in my closet

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

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

I was able to obtain a certificate for the first site lafamillenoire.com but when I try to expand to a second domain, the second domain times out. I’m not sure where to start to look for troubleshooting.

lafamillenoire.com.        (unsigned)  604760  A     73.65.188.65
michaelblack.photography.  (unsigned)  1761    A     73.65.188.65
michaelblack.photography.  (unsigned)  3561    AAAA  2601:681:8003:33fe:bdbf:9f3e:fc4f:7565

The second domain has an IPv6 address, but connecting to it using HTTP times out. You need to fix it, or correct or remove the AAAA record.

Thanks! That fixed it. I had an A record pointing to IPv4 and a AAA record pointing to an IPv6 both in the second domain. I simply deleted the AAA and things are moving again.

Out of curiosity, how did you find out that information about my domains for future debugging references?
