My web server is (include version): Apache ?

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): see above

I’m not familiar with direct admin
But the error seems to be with the TOS agreement being out of date.
This may be something that requires an update to the direct admin plugin for letsencrypt.

I agree with @rg305 This is probably caused by an old version of DirectAdmin.

Kinda stupid to hardcode something like this if you’d ask me. Or perhaps DirectAdmin has an option for the user to review the agreement? So it updates the accepted URL itself?

Ruling out any problem with Direct Admin, Tried to create cert using lets encrypt without using direct admin and got the same error.

I know Letencypt did an update on the 15th Nov which coincides with the error showing up. So, in seem to be an error created by Letsencypt rather than Direct Admin

So, what client did you use instead? There are some which are affected by hard coded TOS agreement URLs.
