    Hello,

    I was trying to install Let's encrypt SSL certificate for one of my domain and it is failed with the following error
    Code:
    =========
    1:14:27 PM WARN “mydomain.biz” failed its authorization because of an error: The system queried for a temporary file at “<a href="http://mydomain.biz/.well-known/acme-challenge/0kL_LYc8zoI-AhzgtBlG3jt0qqyK2hl-Xj3Qy1Fs1XQ">”" target="_blank" class="externalLink ProxyLink" data-proxy-href="http://mydomain.biz/.well-known/acme-challenge/0kL_LYc8zoI-AhzgtBlG3jt0qqyK2hl-Xj3Qy1Fs1XQ”" rel="nofollow">http://mydomain.biz/.well-known/acme-challenge/0kL_LYc8zoI-AhzgtBlG3jt0qqyK2hl-Xj3Qy1Fs1XQ</a>”, but the web server responded with the following error: 404 (Not Found). A <abbr title="Domain Name System">DNS</abbr> or web server misconfiguration may exist.
    =======
    
    I could fix this my temporarly movin the .htaccess present under the document root.

    But I think after 90 days the auto-renewal may fail due to this .htaccess, so anybody knows a permanent fix this for this issue.

    Hello @linux-tech,

    Could you let us know which version of cPanel is installed on your system? We automatically insert mod_redirect exclusions during the AutoSSL validation process in cPanel version 60, but on cPanel version 58 you will need to manually edit the .htaccess file. More information about the manual workaround is available on the following thread:

    AutoSSL and HTTP Redirects

    Thank you.
