Hi @adish.upadhyay,

--standalone is appropriate if you don’t have a web server at all, or if Certbot for some reason cannot use your existing web server to obtain a certificate. It looks like you do have an existing web server; are you sure --standalone is what you meant to use?

If you use --standalone on a system with an existing web server, you’ll need to shut down that web server temporarily while obtaining your certificates.

Thanks for your reply.

After closing the problem resolved. N

Now facing another problem :There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for: azure.com

It sounds like you’re requesting a certificate for a subdomain of azure.com. It would be easier if you requested a certificate only for your own domain. Some hosting providers don’t want customers to get certificates for the hosting provider’s domain, and in any case they’re probably not going to help you with the process very much.
