ERROR: Challenge is invalid!

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.

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

Hi @sofievingstedt

if you don’t have root access and if you don’t use a control panel: How do you manage your server?

And what’s the client you use?

PS: Checked your domain - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=brofastet.se
