Invalid Respose .well-known/acme-challenge

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: digiajay.com

I ran this command: /etc/letsencrypt/certbot-auto renew

It produced this output:

Cleaning up challenges

My web server is (include version): Bitnami (Apache)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Bitnami WordPress 4.9.1-0

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

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 1.9.0

Hi @digiajay

why is there a www.com - answer if your domain is digiajay.com?

Same there. What's the content of that config file?

If you use Bitnami, you should use the Bitnami integrated SSL solution, not an own Certbot.

So starting Certbot may not work because it's a Bitnami.

Hi..

The content of config file is

# renew_before_expiry = 30 days
version = 1.9.0
archive_dir = /etc/letsencrypt/archive/digiajay.com
cert = /etc/letsencrypt/live/digiajay.com/cert.pem
privkey = /etc/letsencrypt/live/digiajay.com/privkey.pem
chain = /etc/letsencrypt/live/digiajay.com/chain.pem
fullchain = /etc/letsencrypt/live/digiajay.com/fullchain.pem

# Options used in the renewal process
[renewalparams]
authenticator = webroot
account = 9dd73ecb03e9686f7f967f101582bac6
server = https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory
webroot_path = /var/www/html,
[[webroot_map]]
www.digiajay.com = /var/www/html
digiajay.com = /var/www/html

The result is expected.

If you use Bitnami, that's

normally not your webroot.

Bitnami has it's own rules.

So may be find your correct Bitnami webroot.
