I hate SSL and HTTPS. It makes self hosting so much harder. Having all sorts of issues. I am serving a public website I don't need a secure connection.

@lunaterra yeah was just trying to figure it out for an hour cause I wanted to get my site off of github but gave up cause I didn't understand the errors I was getting.

@lunaterra no off github. github does it automatically. I moved my site off to Hostgator and then of course it didn't automatically move the already existing letsencrypt so I tried re adding it to the new hosting provider but it was giving me so many issues.

@selea @lunaterra something about there being an unexpected result in my .well-known folder and it kept showing this error even after I deleted everything out of the folder.


You dont have any rewriterules or proxying all traffic to .well-known to another server?
You can try DNS-validation instead.


If Certbot can't be run Hostgator,

Install locally and issue cert. Move the cert to the server

@selea @lunaterra @wakest

@noorul @selea @lunaterra I tried that. I was getting errors I didn't understand on the local certbot about something in my .well-known folder being unexpected. I messed with it for a an hour and couln't figure it out.



I can recommend using acme.sh instead also, certbot likes to have alot of dependecies :)

Hey buddy,

Whats up?

I've used ZeroSSL and CertBot on Webserver.

Just heard from you about acme.sh.

Read about it here https://medium.com/@pavlakis/using-acme-sh-to-generate-letsencrypt-certificates-c98f28752e9f

Will try this out soon and avoid using certbot.
