Error on installing letsencrypt

Hello guys, i am having trouble installing lets encrypt on my server.
it is VPS with Ubuntu 20, ERPNext with Bench Manager all installed and perfectly working, i have multiple sites the default one is erpnext.techmark.cloud rest of sites are are routed in deferent ports.
when i run sudo -H bench setup lets-encrypt erpnext.techmark.cloud i get this error msg.

erpnext@vmi477494:/opt/bench/erpnext$ sudo -H bench setup lets-encrypt erpnext.techmark.cloud
[sudo] password for erpnext:

i worked alot and found the error with missing the certificate files. means they are not generated except all other commands implemented but ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/erpnext.techmark.cloud/fullchain.pem; and ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/erpnext.techmark.cloud/privkey.pem; files are missing in general the whole /etc/letsencrypt/live folder is missing and there is no folder with such a name even i searched the certificate files and nothing is found. now my sites are not opening and i need to get back even if possible i am willing to undo the letsencrypt installation but i did not found anyway to do that. can someone help me out here.

Not sure about the error, but this may help to get your sites working again:

  • Check your site_config.json resp. common_site_config.json and delete everything regarding the ssl certificate
  • bench setup nginx
  • sudo service nginx restart

can you please tell me where it is located ?

frappe-bench/sites/common_site_config.json or
frappe-bench/sites/{{ site_name }}/site_config.json

This is not the recommended mode of installation for production. Instead, install the package from PyPI with: pip install frappe-bench

thanks found the files, did the deleting and did not worked.
Yes i exactly followed installation of lets encrypt according to the link you sent this was were the problem appeared at first.

Well, it seems something went wrong when you’ve deleted the lines.

inside your bench folder

nano ~/.bench/bench/config/ lets_encrypt.py

change

def get_certbot_path():
return “/opt/certbot-auto”

into

def get_certbot_path():
# switch to snap certbot - begin

# return "/opt/certbot-auto"

return "/snap/bin/certbot"

# switch to snap certbot - end

sudo apt install snapd

sudo snap install --classic certbot

sudo bench setup lets-encrypt yourSiteName

That’s one option! What do you think of this?

Please let me know which of these two methods is more robust.

Thanks
