My domain is: service.summasummarum.at
I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --apache

When visiting http://service.summasummarum.at from outside i can see the well-known default welcome page, so the server is up and running on Port 80.
In my httpd.conf i have the main server configured with
set but no other Virtual Servers because i want the setup to be as simple as possible.
the full error text is:
http-01 challenge for service.summasummarum.at Cleaning up challenges Unable to find a virtual host listening on port 80 which is currently needed for Certbot to prove to the CA that you control your domain. Please add a virtual host for port 80.
Is it absolutely necessary to create a virtual host or is this another error hiding behind?
