My domain is: www.wefearchange.org
I ran this command: letsencrypt renew
It produced this output:
2017-02-17 16:17:01,702:WARNING:letsencrypt.cli:Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.wefearchange.org.conf produced an unexpected error: The apache plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: NoInstallationError(). Skipping.
My operating system is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
My web server is (include version): apache2 2.4.18-2ubuntu3.1
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no
I installed letsencrypt on my Ubuntu server a few months ago, but less than the 3 month renewal period, and enabled all my sites to use the certificates. Everything’s been working beautifully since then, and I see my twice-per-day renewal notifications (via
letsencrypt renew from cron). I’ve not yet needed any renewals and still shouldn’t.
However, just today
letsencrypt renew has started failing for all my domains with the above error message. I have no idea what may have changed. Neither apache2 nor letsencrypt got updated (both are installed via apt, e.g. letsencrypt version 0.4.1-1). I even keep my /etc under etckeeper so if I look at the git logs, nothings changed in my configuration since the 9th of February, and the renew check has worked great… until now.
Any thoughts on what might have suddenly broken it?
