A domain failed to renew Let’s Encrypt today on Centos 7 running Virtualmin.

No sign of .well-known directory under public_html.

Had a look on all 4 VPS on Centos 7 and Centos 8 (two with Bitfolk, two overseas) and none of the sites I checked have a .well-known directory any more!


Anyone seen this, or can offer a clue?

Isn't this directory created by certbot and therefore probably deleted by it when the challenge has completed? Does the user ID that certbot is being run under have write permission in the public_html directory? If not, it won't be able to create the .well_known folder.

All the best,
