How to fix "Failed authorization procedure"??

Hello again. I’m trying to set ssl cert on debian 10 with nginx via certbot
after selecting the desired domain name and vhost I recieved such error message:

Failed authorization procedure. (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from []: “<html xml:lang=“fr-FR” lang=“fr-FR”>\n\n<title qtlid=“28806”>F\xe9licitations ! Votre domaine a bien \xe9t\xe9 cr\xe9\xe9 chez OVH !</”


  • The following errors were reported by the server:

    Type: unauthorized
    Detail: Invalid response from
    []: “<html xml:lang=“fr-FR”
    lang=“fr-FR”>\n\n<title qtlid=“28806”>Félicitations !
    Votre domaine a bien été créé chez OVH !</”

    To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
    entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
    contain(s) the right IP address.
    Please tell, what should I check and fix?

Hi @Firefury

there is a check of your domain, ~~20 minutes old -

There you see the problem.

Checking a file in /.well-known/acme-challenge/random-filename there is a redirect to /. So Letsencrypt can't see the validation file.

Remove that wrong redirect.

How can I remove this?

Thanks !
