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.
crt.sh | 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:
I ran this command: I just clicked "request a new SSL Certificate" in Nginx Proxy Manager
It produced this output: [Express ] ›
warning Command failed: certbot certonly --config "/etc/letsencrypt.ini" --cert-name "npm-28" --agree-tos --authenticator webroot --email " MYEMAIL@gmail.com" --preferred-challenges "dns,http" --domains " bigpigmart.com"
My web server is (include version): uhm Nginx Latest?? I guess
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): WSL Linux/Ubuntu
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Self hosted
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I don't know, probably?
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): Probably not?
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): i dont even know
I must mention that I had it issue certificates to
bigpigmart.com before but I deleted the previous Docker container/image and made a fresh one.... I don't know if I'm missing something or what.
I seriously don't know what I'm really doing but I am trying to learn to host my own website!!
@dragonhunter, and welcome to the LE community forum
NPM is not easy to troubleshoot.
Maybe we can find a clue about what has gone wrong in the file:
Thank you for the welcome!!
I am very eager to hear what you have to say about my situation.
I currently cannot find "/var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log"
I tried to look through the WSL files through my Host Computer directory.
Would I need to access this location through the Ubuntu shell or whatever its called?
Try [within the Ubuntu shell]:
find / -name letsencrypt.log
in the ubuntu shell right?
[many names for it]
I think its searching. was i supposed to run it in sudo?
shouldn't be required [to find it].
But do that if it can't find it.
so is it normal for all the denied permissions?
yes, those are just paths that a regular user shouldn't have access to.
I believe it is still searching... should I stop it and run sudo for it? if so, how would I stop it? I don't mind waiting patiently if you think it will still find it.
It finished. I don't believe it found it
its currently searching with sudo
"multitasking", so it takes me a few minutes to get back to this topic.
[note: "multitasking" means drinking with both hands! - LOL]
no problem, you have no idea how much I value the time you're giving me right now.
this is all I got when I used sudo
I think my shells are already running on Admin by default
Maybe the details of what we are looking for are in this file:
Let's have a look at it.
Does that say "
I totally missed the:
...entering new territory...
Sure does say that. Is that a horrible thing?
I wouldn't say
I would say ... different.
