Letsencrypt works! Can i request a cert for my subdomain?


After some difficulties installing letsencrypt (And iam not sure that everything worked correct!) i had a site up and running with a functional Cert. At this Point you’re great! Thank you for the beta invite.

After reading the mail a bit more carefully i found out that only my domain (jorval.de) and the obviously host (www.jorval.de) are whitelisted.
both where redirections to my self signed blog. (blog.jorval.de) Is it Possible that blog.jorval.de get whitelisted?

I’ve tried letsencrypt -d blog.jorval.de run & letsencrypt -d blog.jorval.de auth. both fail with the following errors:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/local/bin/letsencrypt”, line 5, in
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py”, line 2707, in
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py”, line 686, in require
needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pkg_resources.py”, line 584, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: mock

i have a lot of subdomains, but most are for my private use so i’am ok with the self signed cert.
But for my blog i would be totally happy to have it letsencrypted.

Thanks again for your good work and the beta invite.

That means someone at letsencrypt has to put blog.jorval.de on the whitelist?!.
Where do i have to ask for it? Is this the right place?

Thanks for your reply


Hi @jorval, this won’t be true after the beta test (then all domains will be available to apply for), but right now you have to submit a separate beta application that includes the other names individually. This will not cancel or remove your existing beta approval, it will just whitelist additional names once it’s approved. Sorry for the delay and I’m glad the cert issuance process eventually worked.

If you can identify specific things that you found confusing or thought might be broken, it would be great if you could post about them either here or on our project’s GitHub page. One of the key reasons for doing the beta test is that we know that there will be things that don’t work as smoothly as we’d like, and we hope to find out about them as soon as possible so we can try to make them better!
