There is a bit more to it.
The "www" works but the apex fails.
[there is no cert issued for the apex]


Yep. My browsers betrayed me. I don't know why they autoredirect that.


How can I find a solution for this? Should I add letsencrypt in root domain Im using linode and easyengine

Yes, you need your cert to have both and

I don't know how you do that in EasyEngine. It looks like it should be setup by EE per their docs here. Maybe ask them if not sure.

One thing that may have prevented it from working is failure connecting to That should be working before an HTTP challenge will work

curl -I

HTTP/1.1 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable
Server: nginx

Connection: keep-alive

When I try to add letsencrypt on just it says the website dont exists. "Could not find the site you wish to run site info command on."

How should I fix the "HTTP/1.1 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable"? I have never seen this problem before with letsencrypt and our setup.

I think you should visit the EasyEngine forum. They are more familiar with how it works than we are.

Your domain exists and we can see it from the public internet with both http and https. I don't know why EE would say it does not exist.

Your '503 Service' error is when trying to connect using HTTP. It has nothing to do with your certs or Let's Encrypt.
