Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: install

It produced this output: nothing yet

My web server is (include version): 1&1

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: 1&1

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): i don’t know

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): plesk

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): not sure

Pressed install about five hours ago and it’s still going…is this normal? Thanks!

The generation of Let's Encrypt certificates usually takes minutes. It's probably a problem with 1&1. Could you share a screenshot of that install maybe?

still going on!

Hi @gsmart

looks like the installation is crashed. In the background, that looks like an error message.

Minimize this window and select the extension list to check if it is installed.

Indeed it has not installed. here is the error message

I agree with the above.

The other problem is: there is nothing we can do to assist you. You should contact 1&1 support and report this issue.

ok, thank you all! i really appreciate it.
