Failing On Acme Challenge

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --manual

It produced this output: Invalid response from

My web server is (include version): heroku

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: google domain

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

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 0.37.1

So I have a java spring boot application set up on heroku and I’ve added an html file at that path with the text that was provided to me, but for some reason when I try to hit that path on my domain it redirects to homepage causing this command to fail, when I do it on localhost it works fine, can anyone help?

Hi @shashank90

checking your domain you have a long list of ip addresses. And a long list of wrong redirects -

http + non-www + /.well-known/acme-challenge/random-filename is redirected to Check the output, it’s too long to share.

Remove that wrong redirect. Never redirect subfolders to /.
