Hello community, I’ve seen this kind of issue being posted again and again, but the answer that is always given to the user is to open a support ticket. Why is that the case, shouldn’t at this point be a wiki or tutorial or something to help the users solve this problem on their own rather than asking the users to open a support ticket, since it’s kind of a recurrent issue.
It is sometimes suggested to open a ticket if it is not a general issue, but an account/domain specific one.
If you share the domain and a screenshot of the record you added but is not appearing, someone here may be able to help.
I see those in DNS:
% dig +short txt _acme-challenge.nimizuela.org @188.8.131.52 "NR3LcAoEvhfWIzUVQ1UsZF1Zghkw5GDlQWNzRA2ZHU8" "7zeKoxHBKwgdgOW5uN3LDT0LQuCymhDiGqfpVn94FnU"
In some acme clients you need to add a slight delay between when you create the verification record and when you attempt validation (such as acme.sh --dnssleep 30).
What are you using to create those records, and what tool are you using to issue LE certs?
Sorry, I forget to mention that the one I’m interested in is the “google-site-verification” record, the others with name “_acme-challenge” are the ones I was using with this tool, but I’m no longer generating the certificates that way. The record “google-site-verification” is for using with the Google search-console. Thanks for taking a look into this.
Your TXT record for Google verification is there:
…but it was added wrongly.
The name of the record should be
@ for root, then the content should be “google-site-verification=Sppix…”
Thanks so much.
Hmmm… I seems the Google verification process is using only the domain name (nimizuela.org) instead of (google-site-verification.nimizuela.org) since the error I’m getting on the Google Search Console is showing the same record showed here, that is
If I recall correctly that record didn’t appear before, when added the records for
_acme-challenge, back then the TXT records were showing both
_acme-challenge records on several TXT look up websites.
Do you know what could be causing the problem?
Yes, Google will verify the domain only.
You currently have a record for google-site-verification.nimizuela.org because you created the TXT record the wrong way.
Edit your TXT record so that it looks like this:
That solved the problem, thanks so much.
