Can not to Install SSL

Hello, I have two very serious problems, with the SSL certificate. I have tried to renew it but I have not succeeded. First the error appears
“… Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to download the temporary challenge files created by Certbot. Ensure that the listed domains serve their content from the provided --webroot-path/-w and that files created there can be downloaded from the internet .”

And now I can’t retry it:
“An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many failed authorizations recently: see Failed Validation Limit - Let's Encrypt

Please help!

Well my first problem is getting the certificate. I know that Letsencrypt sends a file to the public_html/.well-known/acme-challenge/ folder and I assume you won’t be able to access it. But how can I get access?


When I visit:

I am getting a “Plesk” default page.



do NOT resolve to the same IP address.

So the list of hostnames that the cert is attempting to cover are NOT hosted on the same machine, which will cause problems.

Thanks for your reply. I don’t use the webmail subdomain. Now everything works perfectly.

I have granted the rights to the SSL challenge folder. It was a matter of time and restart the server.
