I have been trying to get certificates for both main and back up servers for well over a year now.
Ubuntu 18.04 - Apache/2.4.29
Rsync is a setup/security permissions nightmare (numerous Operation not permitted - failed: Permission denied for files). I have not found an easy clean way to do it this way.
Supposedly because I use DNS Made Easy, I can use their API and a Certbot Plugin for this, but…
I have never been able to get this to work, and the instructions are poorly written and seem to be outdated.
For example, I just tried again, and I get this back when trying to install the plugin (from the page https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/ubuntubionic-apache for Wildcards):
sudo apt-get install python3-certbot-dns-dns_dnsmadeeasy
Unable to locate package python3-certbot-dns-dns_dnsmadeeasy
Does anyone have any working solutions for getting Certificates for both Main and Backup servers?
I spend an hour or so every week looking at different posts and trying to get these things to work, with no luck. I have 6 servers around the world that I update and maintain everything else with out any issues, why does this seem to be such a hard thing to do?
I am sure I am not the only one trying to do this.
Maybe I should suggest this as a feature, for Certbot to be able to be run on the Backup server and get the certificate itself from the corresponding Main server as an option, with some sort of key file on the Main server for validation?
I don’t know, I’m just getting tired of trying to find a relatively simple working solution to this.
Thanks, if anyone has any suggestions. I’m about to give up on this, I’ve spent way too much time on trying to get a working solution.
