Having problem in obtaining TSL certficate

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: ayushaopus.cn

I ran this command: certbot certonly --manual

It produced this output:

Create a file containing just this data:

**************SOME CODE*********************

And make it available on your web server at this URL:

http://ayushaopus.cn/.well-known/acme-challenge/**********SOME CODE********

My web server is (include version): nginx/1.14.0 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Linode

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): Linode

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 2.7.4

I'm getting this output :

Create a file containing just this data:

**************SOME CODE*********************

And make it available on your web server at this URL:

http://ayushaopus.cn/.well-known/acme-challenge/**********SOME CODE********

after running this command "certbot certonly --manual"

I'm not sure how to do this part, to make the file available on this directory.
"And make it available on your web server at this URL:"

I've logged into as root user in shell on my machine, but not sure where to create that directory.

Please help. Thanks

Hi @bharat2913, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

Check the root statement in the nginx vhost configuration for ayushaopus.cn.

Is there a specific reason why you're using the --manual plugin?

I was using this doc to obtain TSL certificate.

I'm not familiar with Linode, but do you indeed have such a "Object Storage bucket"? Or do you have a complete VPS (with nginx et cetera) where you can run stuff like Certbot on?
