Trying to see if I could install the free SSL on a one-click WordPress site via Vultr and running into issues. It is using Ubuntu 16.04 x64 4.9.4 and I have followed the instructions from this guide up until the renew certificate step:
This is the error I get:
Obtaining a new certificate
Performing the following challenges:
http-01 challenge for mgpaper.co
http-01 challenge for www.mgpaper.co
nginx: [error] invalid PID number “” in “/var/run/nginx.pid”
Waiting for verification…
Cleaning up challenges
Failed authorization procedure. www.mgpaper.co (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:dns :: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for www.mgpaper.co
The following errors were reported by the server:
Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
making regular backups of this folder is ideal.
root@guest:~# nano /etc/nginx/conf.d/wordpress_http.conf
root@guest:~# service nginx start
Job for nginx.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status nginx.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.

Not sure what the issue is and how I can fix it. It’s a test site to see if and how the certificate can work. My domian is pointing to the A record address and I have both CNAME’s for mgpaper.co and www.mgpaper.co pointing to the ip.
Any help is mucho appreciado as I am a bit new to this.
