my Ubuntu 16.04.01 LTS server stopped working a few hours ago after updating it from 14.04 LTS. After installing the OS again and setting up my websites (that I had backed up) I went to renew my almost expired certificates. For some reason letsencrypt-auto put the new certificate in a seperate directory “/etc/letsencrypt/archive/carlgo11-[001,002…]/” and so it kept thinking the certificate was about to expire. I have no idea why it put them in a new directory and why it didn’t change the links in /etc/letsencrypt/live/carlgo11/ to the corresponding folders.
When noticed what happened I went to create a new one instead of using the “renew” param. When I did that it complained about the [archive/live]/carlgo11.com directories already existing and so I deleted them.
Then when that was done this error popped up:
So now I’m without any certificate for my website and it looks like I’m unable to generate a new one for 7 days.
Would any administrators of Let’s Encrypt be able to reset my limit so that I can create a certificate and get my website up and running again?
As it is now my web-server is pretty much useless as Nginx crashes due to no certificates.
TL;DR It’s not my day today… Certificate gone and website is down.
My operating system is (include version):
My web server is (include version):
Nginx 1.10.0 (Ubuntu)
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):
