Trying to add a wildcard SSL

Posted March 20, 2020 96 views

Hey,

I’m trying to add a wildcard SSL to one of my domains, but from an Ubuntu VM using certbot. (I would use it from the domain manager but I want the certificate for other machines on my home network as well.)

I’ve created an API token to use when doing the DNS challenges. certbot creates a TXT entry. When the TXT entry is verified, however, it complains that it’s the wrong value.

Is this something that you’ve seen before?

tk@woody:~$ sudo certbot certonly --dns-digitalocean --dns-digitalocean-credentials ~/.do-token-certbot.ini --dns-digitalocean-propagation-seconds 60 -d lumbergeek.ca -d *.lumbergeek.ca

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

   Domain: lumbergeek.ca
   Type:   unauthorized
   Detail: Incorrect TXT record
   "okkN0c5j1Q1zsVRriYctR5PZVCv0wI6ad_pxU8HZaVk" found at
   _acme-challenge.lumbergeek.ca

   Domain: lumbergeek.ca
   Type:   unauthorized
   Detail: Incorrect TXT record
   "okkN0c5j1Q1zsVRriYctR5PZVCv0wI6ad_pxU8HZaVk" found at
   _acme-challenge.lumbergeek.ca

   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.
 - Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
   configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
   secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
   also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
   making regular backups of this folder is ideal.
 - We were unable to subscribe you the EFF mailing list because your
   e-mail address appears to be invalid. You can try again later by
   visiting https://act.eff.org.

Any ideas?
thanks
