My domain is: diliver.all.net
I ran this command:
PER the manual:
If you’d like to obtain a certificate running
certbot on a machine other than your target webserver or perform the steps for domain validation yourself, you can use the manual plugin. While hidden from the UI, you can use the plugin to obtain a certificate by specifying
--manual on the command line. This requires you to copy and paste commands into another terminal session, which may be on a different computer.
The manual plugin can use either the
http or the
dns challenge. You can use the
--preferred-challenges option to choose the challenge of your preference.
http challenge will ask you to place a file with a specific name and specific content in the
/.well-known/acme-challenge/ directory directly in the top-level directory (“web root”) containing the files served by your webserver. In essence it’s the same as the webroot plugin, but not automated.
======================= ACTUAL TRANSCRIPT:
It produced this output:
certbot certonly --manual
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator manual, Installer None
Please enter in your domain name(s) (comma and/or space separated) (Enter ‘c’

certificate. If you’re running certbot in manual mode on a machine that is not
your server, please ensure you’re okay with that.
Are you OK with your IP being logged?

Error getting validation data
To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that
your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the
client. If you’re using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.
======================= WHEN I PULL FROM THE WEB SERVER USING A BROWSER USING THE URL IDENTIFIED:
======================= WHEN I LOOK AT THE SOURCE IT IS IDENTICAL
Note there is no newline after the hypnhen - it’s just an appearance from the form
Looks exactly right to me
My web server is (include version): A custom Web server - no name
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Linux - many variants
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: AWS - it’s a normal server instance
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Indeed. And if I stop my server, run the certbot where it provides the server, it works - then I restart my server and the SSL certificate works.
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):
