My domain is:owncloud.qctech.co.uk
I ran this command:
certbot-auto --staging --apache
It produced this output:
The following errors were reported by the server:
My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.18
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
I can login to a root shell on my machine: Yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site: No
Hi All, I’ve got what I think is a fairly simple setup. One webserver with one domain name pointed to it on one IP address. When I run certbot it fails with the above message. If I drop a txt file into owncloud.qctech.co.uk/.well-known/acme-challenge/ then I can get to it no problem via a browser (http request is re-directed to https). I’m assuming that certbot is struggling to write the file or is writing it to the wrong place maybe. I have tried to ls the folder whist waiting for the challenge and the file never seems to appear.
Could anyone help me with working out where certbot is writing the .well-know/acme-challenge to and how I would find out if it is struggling to write.
Incidentally I am running as root from a sudo -i
Thanks in advance
