Keep getting error when trying to get Letsencrypt certificate for Gitlab Pages


I’m trying to set up a Gitlab Page with a Lets Encrypt certificate. I keep getting the error: " Something went wrong while obtaining the Let’s Encrypt certificate." I’ve done what’s described in the docs here: GitLab Pages integration with Let's Encrypt | GitLab

  1. I’ve properly set only one CNAME or A DNS record for my subdomain.
  2. I don’t have an AAAA DNS record.
  3. I don’t have a CAA DNS record
  4. The domain is verified by Gitlab. I can successfully open the page with http, but not with https.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. The error doesn’t give me much insight into what might be going wrong. This is currently blocking the release of our app.
