My domain is: email.pineberry.services
I ran this command: sudo certbot -v certonly --webroot --dry-run -w /var/www/html -d email.pineberry.services
(I fist had used "certbot renew", but since I was running into issues I wanted to first do the dry run until it works)
It produced this output:
The following errors were reported by the server:
Detail: XXX.XXX.XX.XXX: Fetching
Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem)

firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the
client. If you're using the webroot plugin, you should also verify

I'm trying for a few days now to renew my SSL certificate for our email server. I'm running this server for about a year and have renewed the certificate already a few times without any issues, until now unfortunately. I still have a valid certificate, for about 1 week and I can access my sites on the server and everything is working fine.
I went already through different threads and try the solutions I found there, so far unfortunately without any success.
At my firewall port 80 and port 443 are open. I also tried to ping port 80 and it is available. I also put a test file at the path where it is trying to put the challenge and accessed it via the browser which is working.
I checked the webroot path and it is also the one I use in the command as shown below:
Does anyone has any idea what the issue might is?
Thank you very much in advance!
