Hello all! I’m back with a new question. I had a previous post on problems I had with getting an LE cert downloaded and working with the company Wiki on a Mac Pro running MacOS server. Fortunately, with the help of the community, I was able to get the LE cert downloaded and working!
Well, I’m back. I had to perform a fresh install of the OS and Server. I’m following the same guide as I did before and encountering an issue on the first step. After installing brew and attempting to install the LE client, I’m finding that the /etc/letsencrypt folder is not being created. When I run:
~/letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto --help --debug
I get the following output:
server:~ administrator$ ~/letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto --help --debug Requesting to rerun /Users/administrator/letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto with root privileges... Bootstrapping dependencies for macOS... (you can skip this with --no-bootstrap) Using Homebrew to install dependencies... Error: Running Homebrew as root is extremely dangerous and no longer supported. As Homebrew does not drop privileges on installation you would be giving all build scripts full access to your system.
I am uncertain if this is what is causing the mentioned folder to not be created, but I don’t want to continue following the guide until I resolve this issue.
