Serverpilot, Let's Encrypt, Lesaff script - Timeout when trying .well-known/acme-challenge/

Nginx Let's Encrypt Ubuntu 16.04

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question... but within the last 3 months I:

Took a snapshot and moved my server.

Then I deleted the old one.

I made a floating IP and assigned it to my new server.

My letsencrypt and nginx-sp were working for months before that until now. I can't figure out what I've done wrong, but it seems that letsencrypt can't connect to the /.well-known/acme-challenge/ stuff. I get a "Timeout" for every one.

I disabled ufw because I thought that might be doing it, but it did not help. What can I show (logs?) to know what's happening?

  • DNS checks out.

    I deleted an app with ServerPilot and reinstalled it with ServerPilot and now that app works properly and the script to Certbot install the SSL worked. I don't know what changed with the deleting and reinstalling.

    It's starting to feel like a permissions issue but as far as I can see the app that now works and the apps that don't work have the same permissions.

  • I'm a dummy. In my DNS I have IPv6 still and there is no floating IPv6 with digitalocean yet. I removed those in DNS and I'm all good again!
