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: joeman1.com
I ran this command: certbot --apache
It produced this output:

Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: apache). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Detail: 18.104.22.168: Fetching http://joeman1.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/_gttZHYqpM2LB2g3vqmGgeL7U1UEsxQSOYNwmWzcpco: Timeout during connect (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.
Some challenges have failed.
Ask for help or search for solutions at https://community.letsencrypt.org. See the logfile /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Rocky Linux release 8.6 (Green Obsidian)

The version of my client is (e.g. output of

This worked for years with CentOS as well as Rocky Linux. Got an alert in e-mail that my domain expires in 12 days and now I cant update anymore.
My website is fully accessible on the internet and I have no issues with connecting and using my services.
Please let me know how to fix. Thanks!
