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: oystercatchergirl.ca
I ran this command: certbot --nginx -d oystercatchergirl.ca
It produced this output:
Requesting a certificate for oystercatchergirl.ca
Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: nginx). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Detail: Fetching http://18.104.22.168:/oystercatchergirl.ca: Error getting validation data
Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary nginx configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure the listed domains point to this nginx server and that it is accessible from the internet.
Some challenges have failed.
My web server is (include version): nginx/1.14.0
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 20.04
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: DigitalOcean
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): no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): 1.17.0
This is a new website I'm trying to setup. I can access it (sort of) from my system at home via port 80 so it seems it is "available on the internet". I can't access it via https but assume at least part of the problem or maybe the whole thing may be because I don't have a certificate. I'm fairly new to nginx so could well have something in the nginx configuration wrong.
