Looking for some advise from you experts out there… We have a laravel site on a domain and are unable to issue an SSL cert due to the root of the application being set to …/public_html/public - for laravel…
These are in nginx conf files for this site. All other sites use the default …/public_html folder and SSL works as expected.
set $base /home/domain.com/public_html;
Relevant part of the error…
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.
Can someone point me in the right direction so I can have the laravel app and SSL requests/renewals work as expected on this site?
Thank you in advance for your time!
Nothing on this? Nobody has run into this issue? Appreciate any assistance!
how are you requesting a certificate? Via Virtualmin lets encrypt tab?
Not sure how laravel works inside a Virtual Server.
Yes, that is correct. On this site Let’s Encrypt errors b/c the root has the “/public” added in Nginx. Other (non-laravel) sites install/renew Let’s Encrypt w/out issue.
I just don’ t know how to work around the root location, or if there is a better way to configure a laravel app for Virtualmin environment.
Ok so I figured this out, entirely my lack of Virtualmin knowledge…
First I reverted my nginx changes back to the default path Virtualmin creates
Then go to Web Configuration → Website Options → Website documents sub-directory = public_html/public
SSL renewal works as expected. Laravel application works as expected. Virtualmin is awesome!
