[HELP] server error while generating certification


I heard let’s encrypt has run into public beta. So I clone the client to my server, and executed ’ ./letsencrypt-auto '. But then it didn’t seem so fine.
I’m a newbee to this, help me please…


This is failing when it tries to confirm that you control the domain,

When doing this it paces a small file in your-domain.net/.well-known/acme-challenge/somerandomdigits and in your case it can’t read that ( for whatever reason).

We’d need a bit more information to be specific. If you create the folders manually for .well-known/acme-challenge (within your domain web folder) and add a file ( say aaa) can you then get to it in your browser ?
