Failed authorization procedure. drammen.minby.net (http-01): urn:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response

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: drammen.minby.net

I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly -a webroot --webroot-path=/home/ezhike_user/drammen_admin/public -d drammen.minby.net

It produced this output:

Are you sure /home/ezhike_user/drammen_admin/public is the correct path?

What is in Nginx’s error log?

Yes, the path is correct

Hi @borsemangesh

https works, there is the expected result http status 200. But http doesn’t work.

If you check that with your browser, your browser may use the preferred https version.

So use online tools to check such things.

So your http and https may have different root directories. Or there is an additional location definition.

Where can I check that?
