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: barrybserver.com
I ran this command: certbot certonly --manual
It produced this output: It asked me for my domain name-the let me knwo that the ip address will be made public-then it gave me the file_name.file_challenge, I included the .well-know/acme-challenge/file_name.file_challenge
I served it as a static file, and tested the connection which is working.
I pressed ENTER and it waited for verification…
Then returned “Challenge failed for domain barrybserver.com”
“Timed out during connect (likely firewall problem)”
My web server is (include version): node.js => express 4.16.1
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu 20
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: vultr
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):
Im using VisualStudio Code Remote Explorer
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):5.0.3
That’s the issue, I did this 4 times but the connection timed out every time. I used the current file_name.file_challenge ever time as well…I need help.
