Renew certificate error : The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain

Hi,
I tried to renew SSL Certificate and I got this message:

Attempting to renew cert (lujomark-babies.com) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/lujomark-babies.com.conf produced an unexpected error: Failed authorization procedure. lujomark-babies.com (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:connection :: The server could not connect to the client to verify the domain :: Fetching http://lujomark-babies.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/iGQFr653nC-tPCL_-8eR-fDyNyWYwAy8vBjJOdrUCCs: Connection refused. Skipping. All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed: /etc/letsencrypt/live/lujomark-babies.com/fullchain.pem (failure)

Does someone have any idea how to solve it ?

My domain is: lujomark-babies.com

I ran this command: certbot renew | certbot renew -q

It produced this output: UP

My web server is (include version): openLiteSpeed

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Cloud Platform

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):
Google Cloud VM instance

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 0.31.0

Thanks to helpers :]

Hi @adirpion

see your error:

you need a working port 80 if you want to create a certificate via http validation. But your port 80 doesn’t answer - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=lujomark-babies.com

Only your port 443 answers.

Open your port 80.

Hi JuergenAuer,
First of all , thank you very much for your fast response.
I did what you told me and now I got this message:

What’s that? No Apache, no nginx.

What’s the content of your config file? How did you create your older certificate?

Do that again. And don’t use -q, that hides too much.

openLiteSpeed is this:

Some technology that purports to be extremely fast.
Here I used the docs to install the SSL certificate in the first time:
https://docs.litespeedtech.com/cloud/images/wordpress/#quick-start
But now I can’t use it agein because of the errors.

I don’t use -q, I’m just typing certbot renew and I got the error message above.
I don’t know what all this happens.

There

is all you need. Your local litespeed looks incomplete, so validation doesn’t work.

PS: There

23.8.2020, 20:29:51

is already a new certificate.
