Wacs+Nginx on windows

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: wssage.linc.lu

I ran this command: wacs in adminstartor in CMD

Hi @ChristopheH-Ekonoo


is your answer: Your system is blocked.

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G
http://wssage.linc.lu/ -14 10.007 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out
https://wssage.linc.lu/ -14 10.013 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out
http://wssage.linc.lu/.well-known/acme-challenge/check-your-website-dot-server-daten-dot-de -14 10.046 T
Timeout - The operation has timed out

Your port 80 must answer if you want to use http validation. Check your firewall and your router configuration if your webserver runs internal.
