LE64 creat cert on Windows 10 for external webserver

My domain is: rawreif.de

I ran this command and it produced this output:

I want to create my LE-cert with the LE64.exe for windows but I have a problem.

Here is what I do, what causes a problem and what I need to have:

Step 1
le64 --key account.key --csr domain.csr --csr-key domain.key --crt domain.crt --domains “rawreif.de” --path D:\CertBot.well-known\acme-challenge --generate-missing --delayed


Generates the .key, .csr and .crt files and the challenge files

Step 2

Move (drag and drop with filezilla) the challenge files to the webserver at my provider in the /.well-known/acme-challenge

Step 3
rerun command from step1 to accept the challenges and create the certificate

My problem

When I rerun the command from step 1 in step 3 it generate always new challenge files that don’t match

what I need

run step 1 and step 2 and the run step 3 accepting the in step 1 created challenge files

Is this possible and what do I have to do? What would be the LE64 command for this?

My web server is (include version): Apache (shared Hosting at Provider)

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: hosteurope

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): latest version of LE64

For the second run - are you running the command exactly as on the first or without -delayed? Also when you are moving the files created on the -delayed run, are those just the challenge files or you are also moving anything else?

If you indeed run the first step with -delayed and the second without, but it generates not matching challenges, just let me know here or on github and I’ll have a closer look. Thanks.

Hi thanks for the feedback - now it works and I could create my certificate
