Domain Unauthorized

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. crt.sh | 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: jaco.ddns.net

I ran this command:sudo certbot --apache --agree-tos --redirect --hsts --staple-ocsp --email [redacted] -d jaco.ddns.net

It produced this output:unauthorized, o fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address

My web server is (include version): apache2 last version

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): debian 11

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: NO-IP

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

Hi @jacmath, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

That's not a version.
That means different things on different O/Ses and may mean something different tomorrow.

Please show the certbot log file, usually found at:
/var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

and the output of:
curl ifconfig.io

and since we are talking about Apache...
sudo apachectl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS

The IP is correct = GOOD.

There is no HTTP vhost to cover the name "jaco.ddns.net".
[if that ever worked, it was by sheer luck]

As for the logs... they seem to be chopped off [on the right side].

Don't you see how it is chopped at the right side?
All the lines that end with ">" would have more content further right.

Try:

Remember to make an HTTP server block to specifically handle that FQDN.

Hi

I just realized that the other server I have (also apache), which is mostly configured like this one and works fine, but it's also configured on ports 80 and 443 in the vhost config file. I guess that's a problem? if it's the case, can I use other ports (to be forwarded)?

Sorry for my poor knowledge in this area.

thanks

Jack

To which IP does the router/firewall send the HTTP connections?

Hi

That was the problem. I made some small adjustments in my router's port forwarding and finally received my certificates.
Thank you for your precious help
