If using nginx for a django, I found I has used the same upstream for two domains and this caused one not to show up in the certbot list. this was the duplicated code that needed to be unique for each subdomain, had used wwwskorie twice::

  upstream wwwskorie {
       server unix:///home/django/sockets/some_uwsgi.sock ;
  }
  ....
 uwsgi_pass wwwskorie ;
    include /etc/nginx/uwsgi_params ;
 }

Also occurs if you have duplicated server_name

it is not trying to apply a certificate to the domains. It can only find one. I have several being hosted on this droplet

root@PortfolioProjects:~# sudo certbot --nginx Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator nginx, Installer nginx Starting new HTTPS connection (1): acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org

Which names would you like to activate HTTPS for?


1: ********.com

Hello friend!

When you say the domain cannot be found, do you mean that it is not trying to apply a certificate to one of your defined domains, or it’s giving an error stating that the domain’s DNS cannot be found?
