Unable to set value to path!


#1

On debian 9 with apache 2.4

I’ve installed like this:
apt-get install python-certbot-apache -t stretch-backports

then run:
certbot --authenticator webroot --installer apache

Everything worked fine until I get this message:

An unexpected error occurred:
ValueError: Unable to set value to path!
Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.

If I see the log there’s this part:
Traceback (most recent call last):

In case the same thing happens to any one, here is how I fix it

This was part of my vhost file:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName www.mydomain.com
    ServerAlias mydomain.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/mydomain/
        <Directory /var/www/mydomain>
            AllowOverride All
        </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

That alias broke the whole process, so I’ve changed it to

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName www.mydomain.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/mydomain/
        <Directory /var/www/mydomain>
            AllowOverride All
        </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Then everything worked fine
