The Certificate Authority failed to verify the manually created challenge files. Ensure that you created these in the correct location

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:
tonaly.ru
I ran this command:
Create a file containing just this data:

1waapy_lefga2pvoE4ZaTzRxZhxGz7odK59NVVw8VLY.MNo0r1mJ5O_VWiq7W-C_s3mkjNkgcy-Ih8B_j4h3e7I

And make it available on your web server at this URL:

http://tonaly.ru/.well-known/acme-challenge/1waapy_lefga2pvoE4ZaTzRxZhxGz7odK59NVVw8VLY


Press Enter to Continue
It produced this output:
Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: manual). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:

Welcome @RamilSI

This error says the Let's Encrypt server was not able to find that file (http error 404).

Can you show us the value of the root option in the nginx server block for tonaly.ru? You did not say what kind of server you had but I see from your server response headers it is openresty which is based on nginx.
