Certbot challenge error 404 in webroot mode

This web site runs under Apache on Windows. I installed Windows certbot client and ran it as suggested on its homepage, in webroot mode, since the web site cannot be stopped. This is what it reported:

C:\WWW\somedomain>certbot certonly --webroot Saving debug log to C:\Certbot\log\letsencrypt.log Plugins selected: Authenticator webroot, Installer None Please enter in your domain name(s) (comma and/or space separated)  (Enter 'c' to cancel): somedomain.com Obtaining a new certificate Performing the following challenges: http-01 challenge for somedomain.com Input the webroot for somedomain.com: (Enter 'c' to cancel): c:\www\somedomain Waiting for verification... ←[31mChallenge failed for domain somedomain.com←[0m http-01 challenge for somedomain.com Cleaning up challenges ←[31mSome challenges have failed.←[0m ←[1m IMPORTANT NOTES: ←[0m - The following errors were reported by the server:     Domain: somedomain.com    Type:   unauthorized    Detail: Invalid response from    http://somedomain.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/UIWHcmUsNd_4itYD5IWMLSuldIF4yzd2m9mpSH4W7a0    [2**.1**.1**.2**]: "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC \"-//IETF//DTD HTML    2.0//EN\">\n<html><head>\n<title>404 Not    Found</title>\n</head><body>\n<h1>Not Found</h1>\n<p"     To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was    entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain    contain(s) the right IP address. 

The certbot server does query the right IP address, so the DNS record is working fine. I suspect that it may not be creating the challenge folder/file. I tried creating the above URL manually and querying it in a browser from elsewhere, and it is being served fine. Any ideas what is missing for certbot? Keep in mind that somedomain.com is only used here for example.

VirtualBox LAMP Server to Proxmox causes webroot to disappear

Hey guys! First time here.
Hopefully I'm in the right spot, move this thread if not.

I'm having some problems when trying to transfer my completely functional website thats hosted on my Virtualbox VM LAMP Server onto a Proxmox installation.
Let me explain.
I've had my first website up for about two months now. I'm running it on a Ubuntu Server 18.04 LAMP stack in a VirtualBox VM on Windows 10. I have my own GoDaddy signed certs so my site has https. I wanted to transfer this to My Proxmox…
