Thanks for your help, all. At the moment, the test is closed, and the resources it uses are halfway switched over to something else, so future attempts should be expected to fail in interesting ways. The next step is to release an experimental letsencrypt-auto with 0.2.0 and have you give that a whirl; we’ve fixed almost all the issues you’ve surfaced here (and ticketed the rest). Thanks again!
@erikrose Can you add something to the title or the first post so new visitors to this thread don’t waste their time?
I ran the command as a non root user,
server:~ user$ cd /Users/user/letsencrypt
server:letsencrypt user$ ./letsencrypt-auto --debug --version
Requesting root privileges to run certbot…
/Users/user/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/letsencrypt --debug --version
