Virtualmin user what needed to pass acme-challenge

Topic closed, thank you anyway

Hi @santelia

please answer the following questions. That's the standard template of #help


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

Thank you for the support, I prefer close the topic

Virtualmin is a closed world. There are some challenge methods. Read

The standard challenge is http-01 validation. A file under /.well-known/acme-challenge is created, Letsencrypt checks that file.

But your configuration has an error - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=lavoritaly.com

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G

http is redirected to https, that's normally not a problem, Letsencrypt follows these redirects.

But the redirect goes to /, not to

https://www.lavoritaly.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/check-your-website-dot-server-daten-dot-de

And / doesn't have the validation file.

So (simple solution) find that redirect, remove it, create a certificate.

Better solution: Fix that redirect, so the redirect doesn't remove the folder and file name. Then recheck your domain to see if it works.

Topic closed, Thank you guy anyway

Please JuergenAuer delete the topic and all contents. Thank you for your kindness and patience.

The idea of a forum is, that other users can find older topics with same problems and use the answers to fix their own configurations.

If you don't want that, you should buy a certificate. Then a private, not public visible support via mail may be included.

There’s a misunderstading. I did appreciate your replies. But after having seen that no specific points were found as far as Virtualmin LetsEncript automation is concerned, we decided to close the topic. I personally believe that your speed in replying is very pro and impressive, but the decision has been taken anyway. So thank you for your support, and please delete the topic. I believe that no knowledge is wasted for forum visitors if this topic goes away. Thx.
