Script that has been working for years stopped working after Feb

My domain is:

I ran this command: SRC=/etc/letsencrypt/live/

Backup both sets of certs

tar -cvf /etc/letsencryptbackup.tar /etc/letsencrypt
tar -cvf /usr/local/filewave/certsbackup.tar /usr/local/filewave/certs

Grab the new cert

certbot renew force


\cp -uf $SRC/fullchain.pem $DST/server.crt
\cp -uf $SRC/privkey.pem $DST/server.key

It produced this output:
Type: connection
Detail: Fetching o7r2fGl3lF25uAYjqUQ:
Connection refused

My web server is (include version): Apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Centos 7

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):1.3.0

I just took over a small network that uses LetsEncrypt get a cert for filewave, It uses a script to renew the script, looks like last successfully ran in Feb, I posted the script and output above, New to this procedure What am I missing?

Hi @Randidly

your http doesn’t work. That’s required if you want to use http validation.

Firewall, router. Not running webserver - a lot of things possible.

You need a working http website.

PS: There is a check of your domain, created yesterday -

Only Grade V

ConnectFailure - Unable to connect to the remote server

A Grade A of the /.well-known/acme-challenge/random-filename - check minimal is required.
