Thank you for that cool service!!
Two questions for those who know…:
I had an account to this forum registered since early 2018. It was gone when I tried to login today. Is there a timeout to delete unused accounts?
I have trouble renewing a certificate:
There are several certificates on my server (Debian Buster with apache as reverse proxy for ~8 domains, certbot 0.31). Most of them are non-wildcard-domains with standalone authentication but one is a wildcard with dns authentication. I was creating that last one 2 months ago with
I added the txt-record to the dns and everything works fine.
Now that this certificate needs renewing, I got an error in /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log:
certbot.errors.PluginSelectionError: The manual plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: PluginError(‘An authentication script must be provided with --manual-auth-hook when using the manual plugin non-interactively.’)
The conf-file /etc/letsencrypt/renew/mydomain.conf looks like:
renew_before_expiry = 30 days
version = 0.31.0
archive_dir = /etc/letsencrypt/archive/mydomain.de
cert = /etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain.de/cert.pem
privkey = /etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain.de/privkey.pem
chain = /etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain.de/chain.pem
fullchain = /etc/letsencrypt/live/mydomain.de/fullchain.pem
Options used in the renewal process
account = fbe9c2c81ff2cbeea29f4ac45dd43b55
pref_challs = dns-01,
pre_hook = systemctl stop apache2
post_hook = systemctl start apache2
authenticator = manual
manual_public_ip_logging_ok = True
server = https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory
So everything seems just OK. Where is the mistake? Easiest thing for me to do would be editing the conf-file…
