Hi @akolonin,

There are various possible reasons for this, but one likely possibility is taking too long in between the steps of the process. Once you’ve encountered this particular failure once, the process should be started from the beginning (because it’s usually something more like a timeout rather than a validation failure). Could you try again from the beginning? Have you already done that?

Hi @schoen , I have been using the same process at https://gethttpsforfree.com/ many times since last year without of such issue. Today, I have tried it 4 or 5 times in a row with the same effect - reported here. What else can I try?


#4

Just repeated the same procedure another time - same effect:
Step 5: Install Certificate (Error: Certificate signature failed. Please start back at Step 1. { “type”: “urn:acme:error:badNonce”, “detail”: “JWS has invalid anti-replay nonce xWSUMvPOxf77oyUKUwCNIWtPA1KOs43GnaZG3_71FXQ”, “status”: 400 })

Please help to workaround this as my domain expires tomorrow :frowning:

Well, it worked after all - after few attempts of really speedy cut’n’pasting - I think user experience should be fixed.
Thanks for great service otherwise, hope I wont’t run in such issue again! :slight_smile:

You might want to talk to the developer of that service, @diafygi, about this. I’m glad it worked out for you eventually!
