Error message in not being able to issue a cert


#1

Hi I am not being issued a cert due to failed connection to 155.69.74.120:443. Is it possible for me to use port 80?

Thank you,

You need to use the http-01 challenge instead of tls-sni-01. If you’re using certbot use --webroot instead of --apache, or with --standalone add --standalone-supported-challenges http-01

i tried using standalone mode but there is another error message that states that port 80 has been used. is there anyway where i can free port 80?


#4

The short answer is stop whatever is using port 80. Do you have apache or nginx running ? if so, then just stop that whilst obtaining the certificate.


#5

Or if the certificate actually is for the web server that’s running, then rather than turn it off to use standalone try the webroot suggestion
