    Got FAQ response Debug log says WARNING - Could not verify domain
    but when I use this decription I can get a cerificate. Where is the difference in checking the domain between what cerbot does an ispconfig does.
    tried this on an older server where it worked last year but no more with the latest ispconfig version.

    OK it works, the Skip check was the trick, I wonder why I didn't nee it before
    Happy Easter

    The difference is that ispconfig connects from your server and certbot connects from outside of your server. when your server is behind a nat router which forbids access from inside the network to a domain, then the ispconfig check must fail and for such cases, the check can be disabled. but you must be aware that you will have to take care manually now that all domains really exist as a cert will fail now if a single domain is not ok in dns.
