Error from curl: "Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the server's certificate."


#1

When trying to issue a new certificate using acme-tiny, it failed. When double-checking with curl, I get this:

$ curl -v https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory
* About to connect() to acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org port 443 (#0)

Is this a known issue? Or is acme-tiny doing something stupid?

Sorry! Case closed. I now spotted I had an old entry in /etc/hosts. So sorry about this noise!
