Lets Encrypt Renewal failing on SSL

I have LetsEncrypt setup for SSL and that was relatively easy. But now I have an issue on renewal. LetsEncrypt is failing to locate it’s challenge under the .well-known sub directory.

I’ve tried setting up a non-ssl path but it fails with “connection refused.”

I’ve tried disabling SSL completely with no luck as well.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Figured out the issue. My renew script was to blame. It turned off the Nginx instance and was configured to use the existing site to verify server ownership.
