Letsencrypt-vesta - Potential Bug - Miscalculating the Key Authorization


#1

Hello

I am aware that there are other posts on this issue, tried all the remedies suggested but none worked for me.

I have a server running Ubuntu 16.04.02 LTS with VESTACP and installed letsencrypt-vesta following this guide here on apache2.

When I run this code letsencrypt-vesta admin example.com (example.com replaces a real domain name) I get the following error

root@server:~# letsencrypt-vesta admin example.com
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Obtaining a new certificate
Performing the following challenges:
http-01 challenge for example.com
http-01 challenge for www.example.com
Using the webroot path /etc/letsencrypt/webroot for all unmatched domains.

   To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
   entered correctly and the DNS A record(s) for that domain
   contain(s) the right IP address.
Let's Encrypt returned an error status.  Aborting.
root@server:~#

DNS A record is properly set to direct to the server’s fixed public ip address.

How can I fix this error.


The key authorization file from the server did not match - Vesta

Has anyone tried reporting this as a bug to the maintainers of Vestacp? It seems like it is miscalculating the key authorization.

@cpu I have filed a bug report on the git of the letsencrypt-vesta dev team here

Great thank you! I will subscribe to the repo.
