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: pmway.hopto.org
I ran this command: I first ran certbot renew and I was given the error Problem binding port 80 win error 1013. I know that I can be locked out when this happens so I have started running certbot certonly --standalone --dry-run
It produced this output:
Saving debug log to C:\Certbot\log\letsencrypt.log
Please enter the domain name(s) you would like on your certificate (comma and/or
space separated) (Enter 'c' to cancel): pmway.hopto.org

Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: standalone). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Detail: 188.8.131.52: Fetching http://pmway.hopto.org/.well-known/acme-challenge/El-xOEyf8bWo3QKVuXTWeU18IAgDXZxwlSJEirL8_Bg: Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem)
Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to download the challenge files from the temporary standalone webserver started by Certbot on port 80. Ensure that the listed domains point to this machine and that it can accept inbound connections from the internet.
Some challenges have failed. I noted that IIS was running. I have removed IIS and still the problem remains. I also used to easily run certbot renew but suddenly this is not working. AND I run this command: netstat -ano | find ":80" and I see that port 80 has 4 next to it as a PID. I wanted to run taskkill /PID 4 /f and I get this reply: ERROR: The process with PID 4 could not be terminated.
Reason: Access is denied. AND I have tried the above disabling the firewall as well. Same error. My certbot folder on the C:\ drive exists and I can see the certificates. AND the .well-known\acme-challenge\mytestfile.txt and certificate exist in the public folder of my web site.
My web server is (include version): A recent version of xampp for windows 10
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Up to date Windows 10
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I serve the web site from my home server.
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): xampp
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): I today put in the latest version of certbot.
