I followed this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-14-04
I got to the part where the command is
./letsencrypt-auto and it returns this:
Failed authorization procedure. example.com (http-01): urn:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://example.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/QPUDzybZszvcrjQ1a7ShzMHBbiq8pYCmbN1y8p_K5Dw [server_ip]: 404, www.example.com (http-01): urn:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://www.example.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/VtyUCMvp2hX_80e-x84T-X8Be94xPiPiPsBxbj_pP04 [server_ip]: 404 IMPORTANT NOTES: - The following errors were reported by the server: Domain: example.com Type: unauthorized Detail: Invalid response from http://example.com/.well-known /acme-challenge/QPUDzybZszvcrjQ1a7ShzMHBbiq8pYCmbN1y8p_K5Dw [server_ip]: 404 Domain: www.example.com Type: unauthorized Detail: Invalid response from http://www.example.com/.well- known/acme-challenge/VtyUCMvp2hX_80e-x84T-X8Be94xPiPiPsBxbj_pP04 [server_ip]: 404
The site redirects to https automatically using nginx config, and this error is returned whenever i run the renewal command.
The directory .well-known exists on the server, even in the browser it returns 404, which I don’t know why.
