I once managed to figure out how to get an ssl running through letsencrypt-win-sample (I think it had a vague feature I needed?) it took three days straight to learn just enough to get it going. Given that it created a scheduled task to renew the certificate, I assumed my struggle was over. The SSL should’ve renewed over a week ago and expires on the 20th (this month of September). I tried the renewal procedure in both that and win-acme.v220.127.116.11 only to get errors saying “validation plugin not found or created” and “renewal for xarus.no-ip.org failed, will retry on next run” . Perhaps that’s why it couldn’t renew? All I know is I’d rather not let it expire only to spend another coffee-ridden three days of all nighters re-learning how I got my wamp server under my desk to have a valid ssl all over again I do apologize if this problem has been addressed elsewhere, I searched for days but I’m not as technical as any of this lets me pretend to be.
My domain is: xarus.no-ip.org
I ran this command: (menu options) Renew scheduled, specific, and all
It produced this output:
[EROR] Validation plugin not found or created.
[EROR] Renewal for xarus.no-ip.org failed, will retry on next run
Also reassuring at least to see that selecting ACME account details shows Status: valid
My web server is (include version): WAMPSERVER 3.1.7 running Apache 2.4.37
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Windows 8.1 version 6.3 (Build 9600)
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Website hosted on said personal computer, domain provided by www.noip.com
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Pretty sure?
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): um? is Wamp a control panel? i just kinda use the regular windows file browsing to mess with configs and things i barely know anything about.
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
Literally the first copy of letsencrypt-win-sample
and then win-acme.v18.104.22.1686
I hope this is helpful info, rather freaking out to be completely honest :’) took far too much effort just to set things up this much to the point where i just occasionally image the drive so i dont have to worry about messing with the configs and etc and spending countless hours again :")
