Hi I have an ubuntu 16.04 LAMP dev environment. I believe that I have configured the virtualhost file correctly, however I still can’t letsencrypt to work properly. I have tried the install instructions from Digital Ocean found here. I have also tried the How to Forge Instructions installation found here, but all with no luck. I keep receiving the same error, so there probably some obvious error that I am missing. Any guidance much appreciated.
My Virtualhost file says:
<Directory /home/webdevusr/public_html/povertysdemise.org> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All allow from all </Directory>
My hosts file says:
and the error message that I receive from letsencrypt is:
webdevusr@timbuktu ~ $ sudo ./certbot-auto
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
