Hi! I ran this command: certbot certonly --standalone and then I entered my domain name:example.com It produced this output: Problem binding to port 80: [WinError 10013] An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions
I'm using port 80 and can't change it. I wonder if I can change the port 80 that certbot uses? or How can I change it?
The operating system my web server runs on is: win10 I can login to a root shell on my machine: I don't know I'm using a control panel to manage my site: no
Well, yes, you can but the HTTP Challenge coming from the Let's Encrypt server will still be on port 80. You can have --standalone listen on a different port but you must then forward or proxy the original HTTP request to that --standalone port
Often, you are better off using a Windows focused ACME Client such as Certify The Web. Or, let us know why you need to use --standalone and we can advise.
@ElisS Could you perhaps step back a little and explain what you are trying to achieve as there may be different ways to do that same thing. e.g. what is the certificate for. Is it a website, what web server are you running (if any).
If you are trying to get a cert for a home machine you still need a public domain name etc before a public certificate can be issued.
