Certificate Expired On Shared Hosting - Failed authorization procedure


#1

I messed up my days so I’m trying to recreate my certs for my site but when I try to authorize by creating the document on the site during the initial creation process I get this:

http://XXXXX.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/fYRPcau1jxkQ8YF1jolNyTmN
│ k0hLgXHmEtf2yWBzwuo: (“bad handshake: Error([(‘SSL routines’, │
│ ‘ssl3_get_server_certificate’, ‘certificate verify failed’)],)”,) │
│ Self-verify of challenge failed. │
│ Unable to reach │
http://www.XXXXX.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/xoB6_SHZCy3MWfHznV4L
│ ZacWyPnPoDKZqZH-XnkAIRI: (“bad handshake: Error([(‘SSL routines’, │
│ ‘ssl3_get_server_certificate’, ‘certificate verify failed’)],)”,) │
│ Self-verify of challenge failed.

I’m guessing this is because my cert is now expired, how can I fix this to renew the certificates??

Can you share which client you’re using?

This error seems to be generated by the client (“self-verify”), and it looks like it won’t accept invalid certificates. Let’s Encrypt’s CA server would happily accept self-signed or expired certificates for HTTP-01 validation, but it looks like the client just stops after the failed self-verification. This is probably worth fixing in the client, or maybe there’s a flag to stop the self-verification.
