My domain is: jbautopassion.fr
I ran this command: certbot --apache
It produced this output: The following errors were reported by the server:
Detail: no valid A records found for www.jbautopassion.fr; no valid
AAAA records found for www.jbautopassion.fr
My web server is (include version): apache/2.4.53
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): raspbian
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: ovh
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 1.12.0
hello, sorry to bother but i can't get certificate on my website and i can't figure why... i'm hostng my website on a raspberry-pi my domaine name is hosted by ovh and i have use the dynhost to "link" both.
Can someone help me?
First of all, these are two different domain names. If you're using a CNAME to a dynamic dns provider (you are currently not) you can only use the
www. one. Unless OVH allows you to use an ALIAS record or something like that. If you want to use the
www. domain same as the other, add a CNAME record from www to @ (@ means "the apex")
You currently only have an A record on
jbautopassion.fr., on which you are serving an http (no s) website on port 443 (which is supposed to be https) http://jbautopassion.fr:443/ -- this is another issue, solve the dns one first.
first thank you for your fast response,
so i've try to do what you've just tell me and put a CNAME from www.jbautopassion.fr to jbautopassion.fr.
i'm sorry to be totaly lost in those CNAME, A, AAA
Ok, don't worry. They're simple enough.
- A is an IPv4 you want to point a name to.
- AAAA is the same for IPv6.
- CNAME points from a name to another domain name, and it says ''clone whatever is there" -- you cannot use this on the apex, reason why you're probably using an ALIAS or ANAME record (that's just an OVH feature that automatically sets the A and AAAA records for you, not an actual dns record).
Apparently the CNAME done the trick, and i've a certificate now
thank's a lot
Ok, now you have to install that certificate. If you're using certbot, that's simple enough, just run
i've run certbot --apache isn't it enough?
Yeah, I wrote too soon. I can see on your website that the certificate is installed and working fine.
