Please help me, I have a problem with creating an ssl certificate

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot certonly --authenticator manual

It produced this output:Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: manual). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Type: unauthorized
Detail: Invalid response from "\n<html lang="ru" >\n\n <meta charset="UTF-8">\n HemyDev | Not Found Page\n <meta http-equiv=""

Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the manually created challenge files. Ensure that you created these in the correct location.

Some challenges have failed.
Ask for help or search for solutions at See the logfile C:\Certbot\log\letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

My web server is (include version): -

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

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): ispmanager

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 2.7.1

You have a working nginx server responding to HTTP requests. Why did you choose to use the Manual authentication rather than --nginx plugin or even --webroot ?


just a spontaneous decision

My recommendation would be to read documentation instead of making spontaneous decisions.
