Failed to connect to :443 for TLS-SNI-01 challenge


Now I think I have to wait 7 days to retry.I just want my website to stop redirecting to https .my config file:

    server {
       # listen 80 ;
       # listen [::]:80 default_server;

        # SSL configuration
         listen 443 ssl default_server;
         listen [::]:443 ssl default_server;
        # Note: You should disable gzip for SSL traffic.
        # See:
        # Read up on ssl_ciphers to ensure a secure configuration.

Well, that piece of code is responsible for the redirect, so commenting that one out would remove the redirect. (And reloading nginx after the change obviously…)

You would also need to uncomment the root and index directives for your site to work.

Looks like you already managed to figure that out on your own, as your site is already accessible through HTTP at the moment…


yes but how would i resolve this error?
