Incorrect Folder Setup on Apache Means HTTP Challenge Does Not Pass


#1

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is: apartik.com

I ran this command: letsencrypt-vesta apartik apartik.com

It produced this output:
letsencrypt-vesta apartik apartik.com

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): vesta CP 0.9.8

hi
On the old server, everything worked very well. Yesterday I decided to change the server (I’m moving to the new ip). I changed A record for the domain, first I thought I should wait until the DNS zones are updated, but it’s been 14 hours already and I can not get the certificate.

What are your old / new IP addresses ? I get 45.76.87.13 - is that correct for the new IP ?

Also, if I go to http://www.apartik.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/ I don’t see your verification token files - I get a plain text file instead.


#3

45.76.87.13 - its my new IP
(my old IP was : 108.61.171.45 )


#4

The problem then looks to be more related to providing the challenge within a folder http://www.apartik.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/ which it doesn’t appear to be doing at the moment. Can you provide more detailed debug information ? and can you reach the correct validation test yourself ?

I delete .well-known/acme-challenge/
regenerate key and it all worked
thanks for answers
