(http-01): urn:acme:error:unauthorized and 404 Not found


#1

Greetings, I am trying to install certificates with the following command:

sudo certbot-auto certonly -a webroot --webroot-path=/usr/share/nginx/html -d mydomain.dk -d www.mydomain.dk

But I am getting the following error.

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Obtaining a new certificate
Performing the following challenges:
http-01 challenge for mydomain.dk
http-01 challenge for www.mydomain.dk
Using the webroot path /usr/share/nginx/html for all unmatched domains.

   To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
   entered correctly and the DNS A record(s) for that domain
   contain(s) the right IP address.

I am running nginx and Wordpress with this current config file.

server {
        listen 80;

        root /var/www/html/wp;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;

        server_name mydomain.dk www.mydomain.dk;

        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;
        }

        location ~ \.php$ {
                try_files $uri =404;
                fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
                fastcgi_index index.php;
                include fastcgi_params;
         }

        location = /favicon.ico {
                log_not_found off;
                 access_log off;
         }

        location = /robots.txt {
                allow all;
                log_not_found off;
                access_log off;
        }


        location ~* /(?:uploads|files)/.*\.php$ {
                deny all;
        }

        location ~ /.well-known {
            allow all;
    }    
}

I have been looking in /usr/share/nginx/html and noticed that .well-known dont have the acme-challenge folder. Also the access for acme-challenge is drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 .well-known

How do I fix this?

At a glance, it looks like you told certbot your webroot path is /usr/share/nginx/html when in fact you have configured it in nginx to be /var/www/html/wp.

I am silly, didn’t think that would be the problem. Thank you! :slight_smile:
