I’m using the Docker client in manual mode on my laptop (as I’m having issues trying to run the letsencrypt client proper on a Centos 5 server, but that’s another story). I do:
docker run -it --rm --name letsencrypt \ -v "~/letsencrypt/etc/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt" \ -v "~/letsencrypt/var/lib/letsencrypt:/var/lib/letsencrypt" \ quay.io/letsencrypt/letsencrypt:latest certonly -a manual --text --server https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory
Everything begins to work as I’d expect, and it asks me all the relevant questions - it then tells me to create a file on the server, which I do with the “printf” command supplied, and I can retrieve the URL it successfully with “curl”, so I believe that part is correct - however, it then fails with:
2015-11-05 10:27:11,394:ERROR:letsencrypt.plugins.manual:Self-verify of challenge failed, authorization abandoned. Incomplete authorizations
and no further information. I can see that the client appears to be correctly requesting the file, as I have see following entry in my Apache log file:
my.ip.here - - [05/Nov/2015:10:27:11 +0000] "GET /.well-known/acme-challenge/long-challenge-string-here HTTP/1.1" 200 87 "-" "python-requests/2.8.1"
Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions?
Many thanks, Neil.
