Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
Failed to renew certificate scottbrookesdesigns.com with error: Unable to find a virtual host listening on port 80 which is currently needed for Certbot to prove to the CA that you control your domain. Please add a virtual host for port 80.
My web server is (include version): Server version: Apache/2.4.53 (Unix)
Server built: Apr 15 2022 20:31:46
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Mac OS Monterey
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 1.26.0
Ive never had a problem before renewing certificates but now im receiving this error. I currently dont have any vhosts on port 80. my vhosts file has 2 sites listening on *:8443 (port mapped from my router)
any help would be appreciated. site expires tomorrow.
The only thing that has happened since i renewed my my other domain certificate at the end of november is that I had a series of power outages at christmas that my UPS couldnt keep up with while i was away so the server kept restarting after power failure. I havent made any changes to the files only thing i have done is stop and start apache and httpd
I also restored my router back to stock and set it up with port forwarding for 443 and 80 to my server.
If i try and add a *.80 virtual host i get the following
Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary Apache configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure that the listed domains point to this Apache server and that it is accessible from the internet.
Thanks. i was starting to wonder that myself..... I was doing some testing and I could access http from within my network but not outside it.
im starting to wonder if my ISP has started blocking port 80 in the last month.
but im also starting to wonder if there was an update to my linksys router that doesnt allow for forwarding 80. right after i setup port forwarding on the router I lost the ability to access its management page
Unfortunately, you can see in your other topic that this manual approach may have problems when it comes time to renew your certificate. If you use the DNS challenge method, it will be inconvenient unless your DNS host provides an API to allow creating and updating DNS records from software.
