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: eospict.com
I ran this command: sudo certbot --apache -d eospict.com (i also tried using --apache-server-root and --apache-challenge-location)
It produced this output: Unable to find a virtual host listening on port 80 which is currently needed for Certbot to prove to the CA that you control your domain. Please add a virtual host for port 80.
My web server is (include version): Apache/2.4.29 using XAMPP install
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): MacOS 10.12.4
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: N/A (home computer)
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
I know what my issue is, it’s trying to install it to the default mac apache server, but i would like it installed to a different installation (hence the use of --apache-server-root before). I’m just not sure how i can specify the root properly. It’s installed at /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles (the default XAMPP location).
