Install Plugin for DNSMadeEasy

Can anyone help with how to install the DNSMadeEasy plugin?

So I did:
pip install certbot-dns-dnsmadeeasy

And then tried to use Certbot with the plugin as described here:

But then Certbot says:
certbot: error: unrecognized arguments: --dns-dnsmadeeasy-credentials /home/myusername/secrets/dnsmadeeasy.ini --dns-dnsmadeeasy-propagation-seconds 120

If I type ‘certbot plugins’ it doesn’t list the dnsmadeeasy plugin even though it said it installed it.

It is frustrating that there seems to be no clear directions on how to install plugins.

Can anyone help with this? I need to do DNS challenge for backup servers.

Thank you for your help!

Still trying to figure this out, I can’t be the only one to ever try and get this to work.

I am guessing that it has something to do with the older version of Cerbot on Ubuntu, because the newer version keeps getting held back in the updates.

But if that was the case, why did the DNSMadeEasy plugin say it was installed correctly? I would think it would have checked what version of Certbot I had and told me I needed a newer version.

I don’t like installing and uninstalling software versions to try and find the answer, it would be nice if I could find somewhere ‘requires version x or above’ or something similar.

I have exactly the same problem.

Debian 9.11 (Stretch), 4.9.0-11-amd64
installed and used certbot before but wanted to use the dnsmadeeasy api after i changed to that provider.
Although i got these Errors in the installation of the plugin: It said it installed successfull.
