An unexpected error occurred (can you help me fix?)

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:
90daysofdance.com

I ran this command:
sudo letsencrypt --apache -d 90daysofdance.com --email {my email address}

It produced this output:

An unexpected error occurred
StopIteration

My web server is (include version):
Apache 2.4.18

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 16.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Digital Ocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): Also have webmin, but been doing this manually

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): 0.31.0

It’s entirely possible I once tried installing letsencrypt in the past and there’s still junk. But I went through the procedures here and it didn’t fully clean things up. I’m pretty much stuck for now. All I want to do is completely remove all of the Let’s Encrypt install so I can run it again and have it properly setup the Apache virtual servers, etc.

Thanks!

Let’s start with what certs you have and the domain names they cover:
certbot certificates
then let’s also look at what sites you have and the domains they serve:
apachectl -S

ZDECADE is working fine, running a Webmin script. And STITCHDITCH.COM is also running fine.

Thanks!

What was the rest of Certbot’s output?

Can you post the traceback from /var/log/letsencrypt/? It should be near the bottom of letsencrypt.log.

Please provide these three things:

To see why certbot fails to work for this domain…
We should have a look at this file:
[#1] cat /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/90daysofdance.com.conf
And probably also the contents of any related files within this other folder:
[#2] ls -l /etc/apache2/sites-available/
[#3] grep -i 90days /etc/apache2/sites-available/*

There are two files:

But only one contains “90days”

That seems very odd.

Please show the other file:
cat /etc/apache2/sites-available/90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf

90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf is:

That’s it. That’s all that’s in there.

Then please delete that empty file and try your renewal again.
rm /etc/apache2/sites-available/90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf

I get this back:

You have an existing certificate that has exactly the same domains or certificate name you requested and isn't close to expiry.
(ref: /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/90daysofdance.com.conf)

2: Renew & replace the cert (limit ~5 per 7 days)

Should I attempt ot reinstall?

That didn’t work. I got:
File:

  • Could not be found to be deleted /etc/apache2/sites-available/90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf - Certbot probably shut down unexpectedly

An unexpected error occurred:

StopIteration

Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Unable to install the certificate

  • Congratulations! You certificate and chain have been saved at:

Something doesn’t add up…
Please show:
find / -name 90days*
and
grep -Ri 90days /etc/apache2/
and
grep -Ri 90days /etc/letsencrypt/

Please remove this file:
rm /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf

rm /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf

This file does not exist in the sites-available directory. I did not have to remove it. I was asked to remove it earlier, which I did, but was still unable to establish SSL.

Correct.
But there exists a file (or link) in the sites-enabled directory that must be removed.

Okay, I made sure it wasn’t in both sites-enabled and sites-activated (thanks for clarifying that). But I’m still getting the error, claiming 90daysofdance.com-le-ssl.conf This file does not exist in the sites-available directory (which it doesn’t). But I can’t activate Let’s Encrypt.
