I'm hosting a Droplet on DigitalOcean for my new Wordpress website.
I ran the Putty installer, connecting to my server by 'root' and 'password'. However, the SSL isn't installed successfully.
It produced this output:
Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: apache). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Detail: [myip]: Fetching Domeinnaam Mydomain.nl overnemen? Koop nu en start met je plan. Timeout during co nnect (likely firewall problem)
Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary Apache configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure that the listed domains point to this Apache server and that it is accessible from the internet.
You've removed the "I ran this command" question for some reason. I'm not sure why, as it would be most helpful to know what you actually did to produce that weird output. It seems that Certbot is being run by some (dubious?) script. Would be most helpful what kind of script et cetera.
Apologies. You're right. I've simply created a Droplet at DigitalOcean, selected Ubuntu as the OS and clicked the Wordpress app. Then I proceeded with installing PuTTy and then I connected to the 'root' and 'password' account which I created when I created the Droplet.
Then.. it follows an automatic procedure where it installs Wordpress, asks me if I want to install LetsEncrypt SSL.. and then I got that message. That's how it went.
No, it isn't installed because the request for the cert failed due to "Timeout during connect". This is usually a firewall blocking the validation attempt by the Let's Encrypt servers.
The script you used did not notice this error and continued trying to install WordPress
I can connect to your domain now using HTTP (port 80). And, the Let's Debug test site (https://letsdebug.net) shows a good result too. Have you corrected something since your initial attempt? Because I don't see a reason why it would fail with a timeout.
Who provided that script, and where did you obtain it from, and how did you run it? I assume that you have to type some specific command when you ssh into your server with PuTTY, not just watch it perform tasks with no prompting?
