Note: it’s not the certificate of the direct public endpoint of dl.eff.org, it’s some kind of internal certificate.

Kinda amateurish if you’d ask me :grimacing:

Perhaps we should ping @bmw and @lestaff again.

May I suggest a long term solution and/or a better monitoring service? :roll_eyes:

I would encourage people to follow the normal instructions when possible, but as a temporary workaround, you can download certbot-auto from GitHub.

Depending on your OS, you could use one of the other Certbot installation methods as well.

It seems to be OK again now. (Thanks for the reports.)

So automated certificate client didn’t automated their certificate? :thinking:

It worked for me now. Sadly I am automating an install on Centos 8 so I have to download the program from dl.eff.org. I don’t understand why it’s not in the standard repo this far into the 21st century.
