The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): FreeBSD 11.4-RELEASE-p9

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

The third line seems rather odd.
Please show that file:
/usr/local/etc/apache24/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

Here is the file. I have not touched it in over two years and it never had a problem before. I had to rename it to a text file so I could upload it.

Sorry, this is a bug which appeared in Certbot 1.17.0 and it will be fixed as soon as 1.18.0 is out in the next monthly release.

In the meantime, if you could uncomment any one of the directives in the VirtualHost between lines 34-61, things should start working again. (Or even commenting out the entire VirtualHost, if you're not using it).

Thanks, that fixed the problem, at least for now.
