Hello! First let me say thanks to the letsencrypt community for creating such a wonderful way to acquire HTTPs!
I just had a slight issue using cerbot that I was curious if someone could assist me with. When running
I select the domains I want HTTPS added too, however certbot gives the following error:
Failed authorization procedure. jira.metamesh.org (tls-sni-01): urn:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: DNS problem: networking error looking up A for jira.metamesh.org IMPORTANT NOTES: - The following errors were reported by the server: Domain: jira.metamesh.org Type: connection Detail: DNS problem: networking error looking up A for jira.metamesh.org To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was entered correctly and the DNS A record(s) for that domain contain(s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the client. If you're using the webroot plugin, you should also verify that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.
I’m aware that this issue has been posted on the forums before, but in each case it was either a firewall issue or DNS issue. I can say with absolute 100% certainty that the issue is not with my server, nor my DNS. My A record for “jira.metamesh.org” is definitely pointing too our IP, 184.108.40.206
I’m honestly confused, as I’ve installed two certificates before this site on the same exact server with no trouble. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
It seems all users are having this problem at this time. As someone else suggested, using the “–staging” option with certbot solved the issue for me.
