The request message was malformed :: Error creating new order :: Invalid character in DNS name


#1

Hi,

I am trying to secure my domain, but it is throwing error
An unexpected error occurred:
The request message was malformed :: Error creating new order :: Invalid character in DNS name

My app is running on apache2 and I am getting ‘/#/’ at the end of my domain name and i think it is causing all issues. How can i get rid of ‘/#/’ from the domain name?

Please help me to resolve the issue.

Thanks
Naveen

Anyway, if you skipped the default form & directly ask us questions, we’ll still ask the same question…

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:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

Thank you
