HI folks,
I get the following error from my domain name: wirsys.ca when i try to install letsencrypt. Have read all the threads linked to this issue, nothing resolves my issue. Any help?

Domain: wirsys.ca
Type: unauthorized
Detail: Invalid response from http://wirsys.ca/.well-known/acme-challenge/JgTfkf_MoOYjsQYhfZHFvWJDctj5wBer64mwvcT9E-Y: "<iframe src=“http://mcc.godaddy.com/par

Seems like your domain is just a parking page, or you have one too many A records.

wirsys.ca.              505     IN      A       50.63.202.39
wirsys.ca.              505     IN      A       174.113.135.12

You need to point the domain at the server where your website is hosted, and then issue the Let’s Encrypt certificate from that server.

Many thanks for your prompt response.
There is only one A record, @ -174.113.135.12, if you type wirsys.ca you should be able to see the default ubuntu page

Yes, the other record is gone now. If you try issue a certificate again, it should either succeed or give you a new error.

Many thanks and great help., yes the certificate works now. The mysterious DNS record was placed in by DNS host go-daddy without my permission, this would display some silly ad.
Thanks buddy once again
