Trying to create cert but get error

I’m using freepbx and they have this integrated into their gui. I had a cert with the same FQDN at a different IP and I think that is what’s blowing things up. I moved the server to a new host/ip last night and this is what I get:

There was an error updating the certificate: Error ‘Requested ‘http://pbx.backwoodswireless.net//.freepbx-known/e787e23d1587f68f10eaed30b9711f21’ - couldn’t connect to host’ when requesting http://pbx.backwoodswireless.net//.freepbx-known/e787e23d1587f68f10eaed30b9711f21

any suggestions how to delete the old and/or modify it?

Thanks leon

there was a firewall warning on freepbx for lets encrypt I fixed that and still get this;

There was an error updating the certificate: Error ‘Requested ‘http://pbx.backwoodswireless.net//.freepbx-known/e19b53ade5a45d7da33ba62317749bba’ - couldn’t connect to host’ when requesting http://pbx.backwoodswireless.net//.freepbx-known/e19b53ade5a45d7da33ba62317749bba

Hi @wa4zlw,

If that’s the literal, entire error, there’s something very wrong with the FreePBX Let’s Encrypt client, because /.freepbx-known isn’t something that the Let’s Encrypt CA would ever request from a site, unless it was following an HTTP 301 redirect.

In this case I would suggest asking on

unless you’re able to get more technical details somewhere about what their Let’s Encrypt client was attempting to do when it encountered this error.

Maybe the double slash is part of the problem:
…net//.free…
Or maybe port 80 is blocked.
net

port 80 was the problem many thanks for the prompt replies.

thanks leon
