First of all, not sure if this is really the correct section. If not, I am sorry.
I wanted to test the wildcard function for the SSL certs from my websites.
The certbot package is installed too.
I tried to use the manual way:
certbot -d domain.tld --manual --preferred-challenges dns certonly
I do know that I need to add a DNS entry. The odd thing is that from the tutorials/manuals, ones I run that command I should get a “key” which I need to combine with the entry. Oddly, when I do run it the requests gets finished and I don’t receive that mentioned key.
When I try to request a cert with the wildcard function marked (in webmin), I get this message (which is pretty much normal since I didn’t add the entry yet due to missing the key):
Failed authorization procedure. domain.tld (dns-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: No TXT record found at _acme-challenge.domain.tld, domain.tld (dns-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: No TXT record found at _acme-challenge.domain.tld
The following errors were reported by the server:
Detail: No TXT record found at _acme-challenge.domain.tld
Somewhere I do miss something, but I currently don’t know where sadly.
If someone got a hint for me, that would be quite helpful.
When more information are required to do a proper statement, then just tell me what and I will do so.
