I’m offering Let’s Encrypt certs on all of the servers I host for my clients. When I build a server I use an automated script to set everything up. Part of this script involves making the /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.name/ folder so I can drop a dhparams file in it. Installing the certificate has to wait because usually the DNS transfer is the last step, and obviously domain validation wont work without the DNS.
However I discovered today that the lets encrypt installer does not like using pre-existing folders. Can this be fixed with a configuration directive? I had to go thru the folder and rename all the -0001 things and I’m still concerned there might be issues with renewals.
