Failed authorization procedure - dashboard.krinkleapps.com (http-01)

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: dashboard.krinkleapps.com

I ran this command:
sudo certbot certonly
–webroot --webroot-path “/usr/share/nginx/html/”
–keep-until-expiring
-n
–agree-tos
-m it@mobileepiphany.com
–eff-email
-d dashboard.krinkleapps.com

It produced this output:
Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing…

Hi @timmz

please read your output: You use webroot, so your running webserver is used.

There is a redirect to the login page - there isn’t the validation file.

You have different options. Sample: Remove the redirect if the path starts with /.well-known.

Removing the redirect in the HAProxy frontend, and placing it in the backend allowed the renewal to process as expected.
