I am in the process of trying to verify a Let's Encrypt SSL cert on a clients Wordpress site hosted on 1and1. However, the file is apparently not found/fails to verify.
I have placed other files in the same directory (.well-known/acme-challenge/) and have the same issue - Wordpress returns:
The page you are looking for is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.
Moving the files 1 directory up (.well-known/) makes them accessible to the outside world but the files have to be in the acme-challenge folder I believe.
I have checked permissions and the 2 directories share the same permission, owner, group etc.
Does anyone know what I've missed here?
