I'm trying to set up a domain for my NextCloud server with a reverse proxy.
So I set up a CNAME record of nextcloud.mydomain.me, pointed it to myserver.duckdns.org which constantly updates my WAN IP, and I configured the settings accordingly, but whenever I try to connect to my NextCloud page, it says it couldn't connect. The reverse proxy (letsencrypt) returns this error:
Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: http-01 challenge for nextcloud.(...)htower.me Waiting for verification... Challenge failed for domain nextcloud.(...)htower.me http-01 challenge for nextcloud.(...)htower.me Cleaning up challenges Some challenges have failed. IMPORTANT NOTES: - The following errors were reported by the server: Domain: nextcloud.(...)htower.me Type: dns Detail: DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up A for nextcloud.(...)htower.me - check that a DNS record exists for this ERROR: Cert does not exist! Please see the validation error above. The issue may be due to incorrect dns or port forwarding settings. Please fix your settings and recreate the container
As seen here, everything should be working fine:
Is there anything I should be doing? How do I get my NextCloud domain working?
