Intallation of letsencrypt on debian 5 lenny


#1

My server is debian 5 lenny with python 2.6.6

When I try to launch the below command line, I had some errors
./letsencrypt-auto
–apache -d domain.fr –debug

File
« /usr/bin/virtualenv », line 5, in from pkg-resources
import load_entry_point

ImportError:
No module named pkg_resources

When I tried a : sh +x letsencrypt-auto
–apache -d domain.fr –debug

I saw the error below:
letsencrypt-auto: line 186: /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/pip: Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type
letsencrypt-auto: line 191: /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/pip: Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type

Sounds like you need to update/install setuptools.

To be honest, I have a hard time understanding why someone who doesn’t care about their OS not receiving security updates, would want to use letsencrypt.


#3

You might want to consider one of the more basic clients like acme-tiny. It does require a better understanding on how to set things up, but it is far more likely to be compatible with a (relatively speaking) ancient distro.

how about you update to an a BIT newer version. deb6 has at least LTS.
