My domain is:
I ran this command:
SSL Server Test
It produced this output:
**Revocation status Validation error
OCSP ERROR: Exception: connect timed out [http://r3.o.lencr.org]
My web server is (include version):
LiteSpeed/1.6.19 Open
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
UBUNTU 20.04.2 LTS

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

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
Litespeed webadmin
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
certbot 0.40.0

How can I fix this. Please help. Thank you so much.

Hi @Doxobit


Looks like a temporary Ssllabs problem.


Yeah and once again it is now reporting correctly.

Yes, pretty much every other software I test it on reports success.


Unfortunately, it looks like SSL Labs' "temporary" problem has now expanded (or recurred) for many days. I'm starting to wonder what's going on over there at SSL Labs.

Me too.. I wonder if an inquiry is in order... I am wondering about
http://r3.o.lencr.org though.

I asked about this several days ago in a PM I sent to the Let's Encrypt staff:


Sorry for the broad ping. I tried just writing to lestaff, but couldn't. I can write to certbot-devs though, so maybe PMs are disabled for lestaff?

I just noticed something strange on a help-seeker's SSL Server Test from SSL Labs. I decided to notify you in a private message to prevent confusing the help-seeker with what might be a general issue (or no issue at all). I checked the OCSP server status on letsencrypt.status.io, which indicated no specific outage.


Thanks for your vigilance! In this case, I think it was an SSLLabs issue; our OCSP metrics have all been looking good.

This is a SSLLABS issue. I tested a few dozen random websites and the OCSP error is intermittent at best regardless of the CA.
