Why are you trying to install the package "letsencrypt"? What do you expect to get? :slight_smile: Honest question. You might have read about it in a guide, so I'm interested which guide et cetera.

Also, please fill out the entire questionnaire which should have been presented to you when you started this thread in the #help section. It might not have presented itself or you might have deleted it for some reason.

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. crt.sh | 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:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

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

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


There are the following two ACME clients installable directly with the yum utility on CentOS 7:
acme-tiny or dehydrated . Both are in the epel repository, so you have to do

yum -y install epel-release

before, if you did not do this already earlier.


@bruncsak certbot is also available on EPEL7. But my theory is that OP is following some ancient guide when certbot was still called letsencrypt. However, that assumed guide is probably not a very good one, as it's probably more than 6 years old or something like that. I'm not sure mentioning random ACME clients to OP is very helpful.
