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. https://crt.sh/?q=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:
I ran this command:
specifically this command: certbot --nginx
It produced this output:
it was successful after completion.
My web server is (include version):
express node version 11
nginx version 1.14
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
ubuntu 18.04 Desktop
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
My ISP is vodafone
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot-auto --versionif you’re using Certbot):
Previously, the first time I used certbot, I tried using it with just a node app (using the npm https module). That worked!
I then thought it would be a better design choice to use a proxy server for SSL rather than embed SSL directly into the node app. When running certbot --nginx, because a certificate was already installed, certbox asked me whether I wanted to reinstall the certificate. I said yes.
Could this be a reason? I see no other reason why it would cause an error? I’ve also disabled ufw incase that was the cause, but that did nothing.
