How many HTTP redirects does LE allow for challenges?

When Let’s Encrypt follows 3xx HTTP redirects as part of the http-01 challenge, how many such redirects will the challenge follow before it gives up?

Hi @FGasper

It will follow no more than 10.


Is that a value on which we can depend? I’m hard-coding that number into our client logic.

Yes - I don’t expect it to change anytime soon. It’s similarly hard-coded in Boulder.


Thank you very much! Have a great weekend.
