Unable to obtain ACME certificate


#1

I screwed something up in my docker environment and brought all my containers down, and when I brought them up again traefik stopped working.

I looked at the logs and noticed the following

2019-01-21T18:16:29.888883227Z time=“2019-01-21T18:16:29Z” level=error msg=“Unable to obtain ACME certificate for domains “*.EXAMPLE.COM” : cannot get ACME client get directory at ‘https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory’: Get https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory: dial tcp: lookup acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org on 127.0.0.11:53: read udp 127.0.0.1:55849->127.0.0.11:53: i/o timeout”

I have no idea on how to troubleshoot this. Any suggestions? I’ll include my docker-compose and .toml just in case.

Looks like a DNS issue with 127.0.0.11:53
