Can't configure SSL

im using this command to enable my SSL: sudo certbot --nginx -d -d

but i got this error

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator nginx, Installer nginx Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: tls-sni-01 challenge for tls-sni-01 challenge for Cleaning up challenges Cannot find a VirtualHost matching domain In order for Certbot to correctly perform the challenge please add a corresponding server_name directive to your nginx configuration:

my sites-available/default file is:

server {
    listen 80 default_server;

    root /usr/share/nginx/html;
    index index.html index.htm;

    # Make site accessible from http://localhost/

    location ~ /.well-known {
        allow all;
        root /usr/share/nginx/html;

    location / {

        # First attempt to serve request as file, then
        # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
        try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
        # Uncomment to enable naxsi on this location
        # include /etc/nginx/naxsi.rules

How i can solve this?

I could suggest two things:

  • Make sure that you have the same content in the sites-enabled config directory

  • Try restarting Nginx first and then run the Certbot command again

  • If this still does not work you could run nginx -T and share the output here so that I could try to advise you further
