Information about domain at the end of this message.
I try to create a Let's Encrypt certificat for a Gitlab server, I already did on another server and never had any issues.
This time I use the same Gitlab configuration to activate Let's Encrypt but I got a error message with DNS time out in secondary validation. Bellow short version of the message, complete message further bellow.
"During secondary validation: DNS problem: query timed out looking up A for gitlab.terragamecenter.com..."
Gitlab doc about activating Let's Encrypt (SSL Configuration | GitLab).
I use Let's Debug site (https://letsdebug.net) and it tell me that everything is ok with my hostname/domaine name.
I got certificate created on my server, but not recognize by the browser.
Any clue of why it fail on secondary validation ?
Can I just delete already created certificate and retry to create them ?
My domain is: gitlab.terragamecenter.com
I ran this command: sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure
It produced this output: "During secondary validation: DNS problem: query timed out looking up A for gitlab.terragamecenter.com; DNS problem: query timed out looking up AAAA for gitlab.terragamecenter.com"
