Incorrect validation certificate


#1

The domain where I want install it is ssl.wio.mx

I ran this command in ssh:

certbot --apache

Also I tried with this

certbot --apache certonly

I got the following

Failed authorization procedure. ssl.wio.mx (tls-sni-01): urn:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Incorrect validation certificate for TLS-SNI-01 challenge. Requested 5ba8578aaabf7bbeaf6040c95f39e354.49375de12913585fb8ef507acce06cc1.acme.invalid from 158.69.207.53:443. Received certificate containing ‘’

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • The following errors were reported by the server:

    Domain: ssl.wio.mx
    Type: unauthorized
    Detail: Incorrect validation certificate for TLS-SNI-01 challenge.

Are you running the command as root (or via sudo)?

The message “The client lacks sufficient authorisation” tells me your running it as a normal user. The official client (certbot) can be run without root, but it wasn’t designed to.

If you’re unable to run the client as root, you could try a third party client that doesn’t need root (such as acme.sh).
