Trouble renewing

I am trying to renew a certificate that expires in a few days.

For some reason, my client (python 0.5.0, on Ubuntu 14) cannot seem to connect to the api server, it seems to time out.

I have tried this with apache2 stopped and started. Same results.Does the client need a special port to be open? I didn’t have any difficulty installing three domains 85 days ago and I don’t think anything changed on the server. I am logged as root.

Obviously the client is not able to connect to the api server.

Here is what I see:

@ksorbo, what happens if you run


on the same machine?

I get the following response to the curl command:


Ran letsencrypt-auto again today.
It upgraded to 0.6.0 and was able to connect with no problem.

Might have been a temporary connection problem.
