I just installed the Linux/Python client for Let’s Encrypt, and I’m a little appalled at the size and complexity of the code. I tried to attach a complete list of all the files that were added or modified, but it’s over 300k long, and this system won’t accept it.
To add insult to injury, after adding hundreds of new files to my server, I cannot get it to work on my system. I even tried “manual”, but that merely gave me an unintelligible screen of ASCII garbage.
This is not off to a good start…this monster is a greater security risk to my server than merely running a self-signed certificate.
