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: vibrant.co.za
I ran this command: sudo certbot renew --dry-run
It produced this output: Attempting to renew cert (vibrant.co.za) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/vibrant.co.za.conf produced an unexpected error: Failed authorization procedure. vibrant.co.za (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://vibrant.co.za/.well-known/acme-challenge/rk-kUX2R3Q9AhWdxjIr8tn_3vJ6dJ3NFfYuCGqqxkq8 [184.108.40.206]: “\n\n404 Not Found\n\n
Not Found\n<p”. Skipping.
My web server is (include version): Apache 2
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
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): no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):certbot 0.28.0
I can see why http://vibrant.co.za/.well-known/acme-challenge/rk-kUX2R3Q9AhWdxjIr8tn_3vJ6dJ3NFfYuCGqqxkq8 produces 404 : It is because eventhough http://vibrant.co.za/.well-known/acme-challenge/ is web accessible, the only files in there are from january - it is not creating new challenge files!
I’ve upped permissions buut to no avail, and I cannot find a log entry stating it failed to create the challenge file, juust the one about the 404 trying to access it.
