My domain is: help.mydomain.com
I ran this command: ./certbot-auto --nginx
It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No
It’s looking for
.well-known/acme-challenge/oP34Chb4MTpNYQw3NXz B4YcpOOLur2p1BY8HhCt5NDk which I don’t know if Certbot is supposed to add that itself, or I need to add it manually? if the latter, how do I know what to put in the content? It tells me part of the HTML but then cuts off.
I’m doing the HTTP verification and would ideally like to use just that.
Any help is appreciated.
