NextCloud issuance error: "Nope, it's not there" domain unreachable


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

My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo ./var/scripts/

It produced this output: Setting up nmap (7.01-2ubuntu2) …

Nope, it’s not there. You have to create and point
it to this server before you can run this script.

My operating system is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04 VM (Nextcloud VM)

My web server is (include version): Apache version 2.4.18

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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):


Hello @johansenmeister,

Seems you are using some kind of script provided by nextcloud to obtain the Let’s Encrypt certificate and I suppose this is the script you are using

Checking the script, the error you got is because the script is trying to reach your domain using this command:

wget -q -T 10 -t 2

and it fails to connect to your web server… I also tried it and I can’t connect to your web server so seems you should double check that your web server is up and running and there is no firewall etc. blocking the connection.



Hi, thank you for the reply!

Yes that is the script I am using. I cannot figure this out. The port is forwarded correctly, I know this because I can reach Nextcloud from my mobile phone by using

By the way, I installed my parents nextcloud server from this ip too, meaning to set it up at their house later, using (points to and this worked fine. Could there be a conflict? Is it one certificate per IP?

This output is from my server console:

ncadmin@hogtun:~$ ping

Yes, there is no problem to reach your server on port 443 but there is no connection on port 80

There should be no conflict at all, modern web servers (as the Apache server you are using) supports SNI so you can have several certificates for different domains on the same ip.

As I said, that command will try to reach your server on port 80, to know whether the command finishes ok or in error, you should execute echo $? just immediately after the wget command.

ncadmin@hogtun:~$ wget -q -T 10 -t 2
ncadmin@hogtun:~$ echo $?

If after the echo $? you get a 0 the command wget executed ok, if you receive a number greater than 0 the command failed which means that it can’t reach your domain on port 80.

Instead of execute the wget and the echo $? you can use this command and it will say if the command Failed or terminated with success:

wget -q -T 10 -t 2 && echo "Success" || echo "Failed"



Thank you soooo much sahsanu!

Opening port 80 did solve the problem right away :slight_smile:
