Website down after let's encrypt ssl certificate expired
I’ve followed the tutorials here to have my website use let’s encrypt to switch to https. today my website went down and the error i see when i visit it is “Error 526 Invalid SSL certificate”
I tried to renew let’s encrypt certificates through ssh and got the following:
root@vps1053567:~# sudo certbot --nginx -d x.net -d www.x.net Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator nginx, Installer nginx Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing... Renewing an existing certificate Performing the following challenges: tls-sni-01 challenge for x.net tls-sni-01 challenge for www.x.net Waiting for verification... Cleaning up challenges Failed authorization procedure. www.x.net (tls-sni-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:tls :: The server experienced a TLS error during domain verification :: remote error: tls: handshake failure, x.net (tls-sni-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:tls :: The server experienced a TLS error during domain verification :: remote error: tls: handshake failure IMPORTANT NOTES: - The following errors were reported by the server: Domain: www.x.net Type: tls Detail: remote error: tls: handshake failure Domain: x.net Type: tls Detail: remote error: tls: handshake failure 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. Additionally, please check that you have an up-to-date TLS configuration that allows the server to communicate with the Certbot client.
Any ideas what could be the cause of this issue?
Thank you in advance!
