This post is celebrating the completion (really, is anything ever complete?) of a new server/host/stack deployment project: docker-traefik2-acme-host. In order to make this post really easy to read, I’m going to wrap it up in one bullet…


Should you ever encounter an error like the one below, be sure to ask your IT provider if they created the proper CNAME record when creating your DNS entry.

[Tue Jun 30 20:53:50 UTC 2020] error:DNS problem: NXDOMAIN looking up TXT for - check that a DNS record exists for this domain

That turned out to be the source of this error for me when I tried to obtain a cert for on node DGDocker3.

And that’s a wrap. I am so pleased that this works (and it’s not even Friday!) 😄
