I’m trying to renew a certificate but it’s failing. Running the test function returns that all tests pass but when running the renewal it fails.
Validation of the required challenges did not complete successfully. Fetching http://forums.griffinendurance.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/lCP0XEbw3G9bwgeC0utNQKv6hqAkjGIIrL7bL3iQcjA: Timeout during connect (likely firewall problem)
Since requesting the first cert I’ve enabled “Require SSL” with HTST and a 403.3 redirect to the HTTPS site forcing the use of HTTPS instead of HTTP however the validation seems to only work for HTTP. I’ve tried converting the .well-known directory to its own application and removing the SSL requirement but it still fails. Is there a way to look for the validation file over HTTPS? Since the certificate hasn’t yet expired it shouldn’t produce any errors?
Any other suggestions on how to deal with this issue would also be greatly appreciated. I use DNS validation for another domain’s wildcard but this domain belongs to a friend and doesn’t use a DNS service for which I can validate the cert request.
Thanks in advance!
