I have installed certbot-auto and successfully used it to gen and use a cert for my tld: eugenesymphonyguild.org
I need to extend this cert to include www.eugenesymphonyguild.org
My DNS A record provides for the tld eugenesymphonyguild.org. and the AWS elastic IP address. To handle the www.eugenesymphonyguild.org, I am using an aliased A record that points to the AWS elastic IP address.
command line (as root): ./certbot-auto certonly -d eugenesymphonyguild.org -d www.eugenesymphonyguild.org
the end result is an error: DNS problem: SERVFAIL looking up A for www.eugenesymphonyguild.org
I don’t understand, since I have an A record for www.eugenesymphonyguild.org
Server: Ubuntu 14.04
Running on Amazon Web Services / EC2
I suspect I’ve missed something really basic, but I don’t see it, after much searching w Google and reading the Certbot docs.
I have tried using the webroot option, but it does not make a difference, I still get the same error. I don’t see any other way to set up DNS, either.
So how do I do this?
