I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 0.28.0
Above all filled out as requested.
I’ve seen various posts about checking to see if the . throws it off, and it seems to be working fine for me here: http://freehold-in-the-wyld.co.uk/.well-known/acme-challenge/test2.txt

Can someone please help me out with this?
