I’m a first time user of Let’s Encrypt today. I wanted to create a certificate for one of the new TLDs - it’s a .domains. The site hosting the domain is on a VPS running CentOS 7 and WHM/cPanel.
I ran into the Error: The client lacks sufficient authorization problem that a number of people seem to be having. It seems to present itself as a folder permissions/user problem. But after a considerable time mankling with permissions etc. I wondered if it was the TLD somehow causing the problem (I’ve had some funny looks from software in the past when presented with such outlandish TLDs).
So exactly the same set up on the same server, etc. etc. I tried creating a certificate for a regular .net domain on an adjacent WHM account. LE did its stuff on that without complaint. The .domains one though is still causing the same problem. I’ve got LE logs if any staff member wants to see them.
