My domain is: https://www.wbof.de
I ran this command: I try to request a certifcate via Plesk (Domain already created)
It produced this output:
Could not issue an SSL/TLS certificate for wbof.de
Could not issue a Let’s Encrypt SSL/TLS certificate for wbof.de. Authorization for the domain failed.
Invalid response from https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/authz-v3/2261827224.
Detail: No TXT record found at _acme-challenge.wbof.de
My web server is (include version): Apache
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Cent OS 7
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: IONOS.DE
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): PLESK
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): ?
If i Register a new Domain, everything is fine (i already get certificates at creating a Domain in Plesk).
But if i request a certificate after creating a Domain, i get this error above…
there is no TXT record - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=wbof.de#txt
Ok, may be deleted.
But does your Plesk connect the correct name server?
ns1030.ui-dns.biz is one of your name servers.
I checked the DNS-entries in Plesk and they look correct.
I’m wondering why everything is fine with the other Domains!?
Familie-Bastian.org is another Domain and it works fine, but if i check it with your URL, i get also
‘_acme-challenge.familie-bastian.org - missing entry or wrong length’
Confusing is, that it works for new Domains…
For the wbof-domain, after i create a new certificate, i get a screen where plesk says:
Please wait while Plesk finishes adding a DNS record with the following parameters:
Record type: TXT
Domain name: _acme-challenge .wbof.de
But it never come back… And if i click on Rebload, i get the error above….
Mybe it is a bug in Plesk!?
are not good, but not critical.
If there is no TXT entry, the server should send an error 3 - Domainname does not exist. Not an empty value and NOERROR.
So the name server answer isn't really good, but that's not critical to create a Letsencrypt certificate.
looks like a Plesk bug. Perhaps ask in the Plesk forum or check, if there is an update.
Thank you for the help…
I was able to install the certificate manually.
It Looks like the function in Plesk makes some problems, if you try to install a certificate AFTER the domain is already created…. (Plesk Version 18.0.21 up5)
