Solution for the Let's Encrypt 404 Not Found Problem Aug. 17, 2017

Let's Encrypt is a great service, which provides SSL certificates for free, which is very important for safety on the internet. One of the (maybe even only) downside of this service is that the certificate durations are only 3 months. A few days ago, the certificate for is expired. While Certbot worked flawlessly in the first certificate creation, the renewal resulted in an unexpected "404 Not Found" error.

Unity Networking Basics and Beginner Issues July 27, 2017
