I am trying to renew my certs with certbot certonly --standalone. I had previously set this up but now when I try to renew instead of asking me to create new verification files like it usually does it is looking for the old ones and failing because I delete them after the cert is generated.
normally it would make me create the file in the well known directory on the webserver for it to verify I actually own the site but now it is just looking for the old ones from last time which aren't there anymore.
I tried this on a new vm as well and it does the same thing.
Just to be clear the website is hosted on godaddy and I am running the command from a linux vm since they won't let me install letsencrypt on the site
Is there any way to either force it to let me create new verification files, or see what it is expecting for the old verfication files so I can recreate them?
I am assuming this information is stored on letsencrypt somewhere since this is the message I get.
Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: standalone). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to download the challenge files from the temporary standalone webserver started by Certbot on port 80. Ensure that the listed domains point to this machine and that it can accept inbound connections from the internet.
