I just moved a domain to a new VPS with cPanel. I changed the DNS to my Linode, which is pointing down to the VPS. I seem to be almost fully propagated but my SSL certificate for the domain is failing. I'm at around 7 hours from the DNS switchover.

DNS DCV: No local authority: “domain.com”; HTTP DCV: The system queried for a temporary file at “Website Domain Names, Online Stores & Hosting - Domain.com, but the web server responded with the following error: 404 (Not Found). A DNS (Domain Name System) or web server misconfiguration may exist.

Is this simply the AutoSSL failing to acknowledge the new DNS (propagation time) and me needing to be more patient, or is there something I'm missing? I typically use CWP, this is my first move to cPanel.

Thanks!

Hey there! Thanks for using the cPanel software - I do hope you enjoy it!

You can run this command on your server to see if the AutoSSL system and local server are detecting that IP properly, or if you need to give it some more propagation time:

Code:
/scripts/cpdig domain.com A
If that IP does match up properly, I would expect AutoSSL to work.

IP does match and the domain appears to be fully propagated. The errors are still present. I am using my VPS as my DNS server, not sure if there's anything I'm missing.
I used the Linode 'marketplace' cPanel install. I have tried both forwarding/not-forwarding the domain to the ipv6 address and it did not seem to matter. Perhaps there's an ipv6 config issue outside of that.
