My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot --apache

It produced this output:

  • The following errors were reported by the server:

    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.

My web server is (include version): Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Ubuntu 14.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: arubacloud (VPS)

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):

I have used certbot before I reinstalled ubuntu on my server. Now I want to make certbot to generate SSL.

I can’t reproduce any connectivity issues to your site over HTTP.

Maybe you have https/port 443 blocked in your firewall?

sudo ufw allow https

If your cloud provider has a firewall/security groups make sure it’s open there too.
