Beginner here. Trying to get an SSL Certificate for my WordPress website on Amazon LightSail. I’m following this tutorial:
Certbot provided me with 2 _acme-challange.morelandarts.com codes. I used the codes to set up 2 DNS Zone TXT records.
On Step #5 of the tutorial, on the MX toolbox site, when I do a DNS Text Lookup, I get “DNS Record not found”.
I have waited over 2 hours, but still not found.
I’ve done the tutorial up to step 5 twice to make sure I wasn’t doing something wrong with the same results. I don’t know where to go from here.
Thanks for your help!
