Error: http://www.vps.mydomain.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/letsencrypt_1498052888 is not reachable. Aborting the script.
dig output for www.vps.mydomain.com:
Please make sure /.well-known alias is setup in WWW server.
It seems that I have to make sure that the alias is setup in WWW server. I searched for information and followed the support guide on DirectAdmin's support forum:
I was able to successfully execute the acme challenge test and view the 'text' message in my web browser Chrome.
I would like to know if anyone is experiencing similar problems while working within the Centos 6 and Direct Admin environment. I also have noticed that this 'alias error' is currently affecting the automatic license update of DirectAdmin. Now I have to manually update it before it expires a the end of the scheduled thirty day period.
I thank all of you for time and assistance.
