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:indycrowd.scot
I ran this command:certbot -d indycrowd.scot certonly --manual
It produced this output:Failed authorization procedure. indycrowd.scot (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://indycrowd.scot/.well-known/acme-challenge/QZw240YvGOHVNR7rqNrorq36ypZmVb60K_7X3_c5kFE [2001:8d8:100f:f000::2dd]: 204
My web server is (include version):Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu)
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):certbot 0.28.0
I have tried all the possibilities to install letsencrypt on my webserver. On the above method, certbot requested me to create a file QZw240YvGOHVNR7rqNrorq36ypZmVb60K_7X3_c5kFE and paste the content. I did it and the page is working when we directly access the same. However, its still failing to validate by letsencrypt.
