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. https://crt.sh/?q=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:handel.gemmill.name
I ran this command: sudo ./certbot-auto certonly --standalone
It produced this output:
I have created a subdomain handel.gemmill.name, and want to create a “proper” certificate
because I am tired of getting “untrusted” error messages.
Letsencrypt gives me an error message:
Failed authorization procedure. handel.gemmill.name (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://handel.gemmill.name/.well-known/acme-challenge/ZFJ0hWyCV7ALkFBF5RK8KM1a33CxtfXqksEQZ1qXPmM:
" To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address."
The domain name I entered was handel.gemmill.name.
The A record contains handel 188.8.131.52.
