Weird error that I cannot understand

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., 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: Automatic FTP verification on

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Don’t know

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Don’t know

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: LiquidWeb

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): asked you to put a file under so Let’s Encrypt can verify you control that domain. When trying to get that file, your server answered something else than the file given by SSLforfree.

Hi @abhimanyu1

your website has a fatal redirect, that blocks ( ):

http + /.well-known/acme-challenge is redirected to https, that’s ok.

But this request is redirected - to http + /.

So it’s impossible that Letsencrypt checks the validation file.

Remove that redirect https -> http.
