Trouble with cPanel and Let's Encrypt


#1

Hello,

I’m running cPanel and WHM in a virtual private server. Currently, cPanel doesn’t fully support Let’s Encrypt, however, they’re working on it. With the default setup, cPanel set’s up something called Proxy Subdomains. If I wanted to check my mail, instead of going to mydomain.com:2096, I could simply go to webmail.mydomain.com

This is nice but I can’t setup any .well-known directories and Let’s Encrypt fails. cPanel’s webmail CGI stuff asks for a username / password. If I shutdown my Apache and cPanel servers, I can point Let’s Encrypt to the webmail directory and it’d work but that’s a real pain.

I found a little work around though. I disable Proxy Sub-Domains and enable sub-domain redirects. When I go to some place like http://webmail.mydomain.com, it’ll just forward me to http://mydomain.com:2096.

Using .htaccess redirect rules, I can then allow the .well-known directory through, like this:

RewriteEngine on

# Allow .well-known through for Let's Encrypt
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/\.well\-known/acme\-challenge/

# Redirect http://webmail.mydomain.com to https://www.mydomain.com:2096
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^webmail.mydomain.com$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ "https\:\/\/www\.MyDomain\.com\:2096\/$1" [R=301,L]

This seems to work. I can create a .well-known/acme-challenge/index.html file and access it by going to http://webmail.mydomain.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/index.html.

If I try going to https://webmail.mydomain.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/index.html, it fails, but it works when I try going to the http version.

When I run Let’s Encrypt, the log file gives me a message saying it succeeded. Here’s a long snippet of the log. I can post the whole thing if you want.

Donating to EFF:                    https://eff.org/donate-le

I’m confused though. The bottom part says Congratulations! But it looks like the certificates failed. When I try to install them, I get an error message saying verification failed:

...
Attempting to install the SSL certificate for the exim service...
{"metadata":{"version":1,"reason":"Certificate verification failed!\nCertificate verified:\nstdin: CN = www.jetbbs.com\nerror 20 at 0 depth lookup:unable to get local issuer certificate\n\n\n","result":0,"command":"install_service_ssl_certificate"}}
...

I was thinking maybe Let’s Encrypt requires the https stuff to be working, like maybe it needs to be able to go to https://webmail.mydomain.com/.well-kown/acme-challenge/ and because it can only go there when it’s an http request, the certs don’t fully work.

Am I right in thinking that? Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on and why I cannot generate valid certificates anymore? Thanks!


#2

I figured it out. For some reason, the Perl script I was using to install the certificates in cPanel were pointing to a file /etc/letsencrypt/bundle.txt.

This file, from what I could tell, is just a copy of /etc/letsencrypt/domain/chain.pem

So, I updated the script to set the cafile variable to /etc/letsencrypt/$dom/chain.pem and they installed just fine.

Now, if there’s just a way for me to figure out how to install these certs without having to have my root password in the perl script. I was hoping I could some how use those tokens but I don’t know much about cPanel.

I also gotta figure out how to disable caching for Chrome users completely. That’s not as easy of a task as you might think it’d be.

I’d also like to move my cron job to cPanel’s cron tab, so I can manage it there. At least I got my certs working again.


#3

Once you have put the certs into cpanel the first time, have a look in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf for the location of the SSL cert files ( for generic webmail cpanel etc it’s /var/cpanel/ssl/cpanel/mycpanel.pem )

You can then simply update these files when you renew your certificates, and don’t need your root password.


#4

I use this messy script to copy the certs :slight_smile:

\cp -f /var/cpanel/ssl/cpanel/* /root/ssl/
/bin/cat /etc/letsencrypt/live/$HOSTNAME/privkey.pem /etc/letsencrypt/live/$HOSTNAME/cert.pem > /var/cpanel/ssl/cpanel/cpanel.pem
/bin/chown cpanel:cpanel /var/cpanel/ssl/cpanel/cpanel.pem
/sbin/service cpanel restart

\cp -f /var/cpanel/ssl/exim/* /root/ssl/

Thanks! This is the script I use to “install” the SSL certs in cPanel for the various sub-domains. With your method, do they show up in WHM or no?

#!/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/perl

use strict;
use LWP::UserAgent;
use LWP::Protocol::https;
use MIME::Base64;
use IO::Socket::SSL;
use URI::Escape;

my $user = 'root';
my $pass = 'my_root_password';

my $auth = "Basic " . MIME::Base64::encode( $user . ":" . $pass );

my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(
    ssl_opts   => { verify_hostname => 0, SSL_verify_mode => 'SSL_VERIFY_NONE', SSL_use_cert => 0 },
);

my $dom = $ARGV[0];

my $certfile = "/etc/letsencrypt/live/$dom/cert.pem";
my $keyfile = "/etc/letsencrypt/live/$dom/privkey.pem";
my $cafile =  "/etc/letsencrypt/live/$dom/chain.pem";

my $certdata;
my $keydata;
my $cadata;

open(my $certfh, '<', $certfile) or die "cannot open file $certfile";
    {
        local $/;
        $certdata = <$certfh>;
    }
    close($certfh);

open(my $keyfh, '<', $keyfile) or die "cannot open file $keyfile";
    {
        local $/;
        $keydata = <$keyfh>;
    }
    close($keyfh);

open(my $cafh, '<', $cafile) or die "cannot open file $cafile";
    {
        local $/;
        $cadata = <$cafh>;
    }
    close($cafh);

my $cert = uri_escape($certdata);
my $key = uri_escape($keydata);
my $ca = uri_escape($cadata);

system("service cpanel restart");

It looks nicer in real life. I just lose the formatting when I post for some reason. I can’t figure out how to get it to keep the formatting (the new lines, extra spaces / indents, etc). I borrowed and modified the script from the people over at the cPanel forums.

I just call the script daily from a cron tab entry, like install_ssl.pl mydomain.com
