Lets encrypt cert will not renew

getting the following error when using certbot renew

I would of thought the automatic mode in the installer would add a cron job to autorenew

The following errors were reported by the server:

Domain: passbolt.rocksolid-it.co.uk
Type: unauthorized
Detail: Invalid response from
[]: "\n<html class=“passbolt no-js
no-passboltplugin version” lang=“en”>\n\n <meta
charset=“utf-8”/>\n "

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.

Yes you are right about the cronjob I’ll add it to the backlog in order to add it to the scripts.

The error you are facing can be workaround using DNS auth instead of webauth in lets encrypt. I think it will lead to less problems if we switch the scripts to DNS auth method by default, will investigate it too.

Im abit simple when It comes to lets encrypt how do I auth using DNS, do I need to add a txt record or somthing?

Yes, sorry @tomtomlincs I haven’t posted any info regarding the let’s encrypt setup. Yeah you need to add a DNS record. Here more information: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/challenge-types/#dns-01-challenge
