I have to re-raise this one - Failed to connect to xxx for TLS-SNI-01


#1

this post REALLY helped:

“Failed to connect to xxx for TLS-SNI-01”

I was fighting with this for hours…
I had a cert for an existing site; had removed it, but was always getting the above error.
First: double check you have not limited access!!! I had only allowed access from some known IPs - of course, this gave this error!

But after fixing that, still the same error…
Anyway, the above post sorted it (but then had to set the certs manually in the apache conf file - i.e. un-comment the ones already there and change host names.)

hope this helps someone.
