Ubuntu 16.04 - Nginx - Error Type: unauthorized / Detail: Invalid response


#1

I try to use cerbot to get cert for my web site.

I follow the tutorial here : https://certbot.eff.org/#ubuntuxenial-nginx

But after trying to : sudo letsencrypt certonly --webroot -w /var/www/gfelot -d www.gfelot.xyz -d gfelot.xyz

I got :

IMPORTANT NOTES:

   To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
   entered correctly and the DNS A record(s) for that domain
   contain(s) the right IP address. 

I looked around on StackOverflow and other forum like this one I cannot find out why this is happen.

Any idea ?

Is the web root you specify correct ?

does the folder /var/www/gfelot exist ? or is it /var/www/gfelot.zyz ?

if you place a file at /var/www/gfelot/.well-known/acme-challenge/test can you reach it at gfelot.xyz/.well-known/acme-challenge/test ?
