#4

Same problem for many cert orders. (Hosting)


#5

Commenting to report same problem, seems letsencrypt auth web service is down. Hosting is OVH in France.

Trying to get a cert for a new domain.


#6

Cannot get cert for new domain.


--staging works, otherwise error, timeout on host='acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org'
#7

The same for me, while trying to renew certs … for all domains, hosting is OVH in France too …

Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.assurances-premium-plaisance.fr.conf produced an unexpected error: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org’, port=443): Read timed out. (read timeout=45). Skipping.

I am seeing the same issue. I see that there is an active incident being investigated at: http://letsencrypt.status.io/


#12

Can’t get certificates for my domains, acme-client: https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory: bad HTTP: 504
some domains are inaccessible now, due to certificates expire

Same here

acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org is an alias for api.letsencrypt.org.edgekey.net.

In case you haven’t noticed, this is a FREE service made possible by sponsors. It’s not “unprofessional” because it’s not a “professional” service. You get what you pay for, and you have paid nothing.

The time frame is 3 months because that is required in order to reduce the scope for abuse of the FREE service.

If you want professional support, SLAs, long certificate time spans, use one of the many and varied commercial options.


#17

Waiting till the cert has expired makes you unprofessional. LE sends an email 15 days prior to the cert expiring. There is no excuse for not renewing certs before expiration. Moreover, this should be an automated process. Not a manual one.


#18

Began to think that the problem was on my part… Apparently not. Got the same issue here !

#19

Great! Thank you for the information. Will keep checking for updates.http://letsencrypt.status.io/ says it´s pretty big,
“Service Disruption” on all but the website. :neutral_face:


#20

Got the same here (a week to go). It seems from a netstat -l while certbot is running that it’s not listening on port 443 (or indeed any port) so it’s hardly surprising there’s no response.

(edit) Jumping in before full diagnostics. I can see what’s happening now and will wait patiently :slight_smile:


#21

Same issue here. Cert expired today and can’t renew now.
