nextcloud server domain redirect apache/LE fails

Apache Let's Encrypt Ubuntu 18.04

Hi folks,
I´m sucessfully running a nextcloud 16.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04 with apache 2.4.29. I´ve set up a DDNS on my router and ports 80 and 443 are enabled.
Problem is accessing my site. It directs me to the apache default page. Access via localhost works fine.

apachectl -S
VirtualHost configuration:
*:80                   countomega.dnshome.de (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/001-nextcloud.conf:1)
*:443                  countomega.dnshome.de (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/001-nextcloud.conf:51)
ServerRoot: "/etc/apache2"
Main DocumentRoot: "/var/www/html"
Main ErrorLog: "/var/log/apache2/error.log"

Any ideas?
Furthermore, creating a certificate with Let´s Encrypt doesn´t work, too.

certbot --apache

IMPORTANT NOTES:
 - The following errors were reported by the server:

   Domain: countomega.dnshome.de
   Type:   unauthorized

   To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
   entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
   contain(s) the right IP address.

Any help would be appriciated.

Thanks in advance

Hello, @CountOmega

I hope you’ve already sorted this, but I wanted to check if this is still present. Have you checked the Apache virtual host for your domain name and make sure it’s pointing to the correct root directory (where the site’s files are hosted/located)

Let me know how it goes.

Regards,
Alex
