Lets-encrypt-no-longer-works-from-bench-setup from centos 7

lets encrypt no longer works from bench setup from Centos 7 stack on creating the environment and then stop.

Can you share the traceback?

Update: ok I retried on Ubuntu 18.04, worked a breeze.


I too just experienced this.

[bench@system erpnext]$ sudo bench setup lets-encrypt subdomain.mydomain.org

There was a problem trying to setup SSL for your site

This is on CentOS 7.5, and I’ve followed this guide: https://www.vultr.com/docs/how-to-install-erpnext-open-source-erp-on-centos-7

Mee too having the same problem. Any workarounds?

This was let’s encrypt issue https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/certbot-has-problem-setting-up-the-virtual-environment/83678

It has been fixed now.

My workaround is this:

bench config dns_multitenant on
sudo certbot certonly --nginx
bench setup add-domain {YOUR DOMAIN NAME} \
	--ssl-certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/{YOUR DOMAIN NAME}/fullchain.pem \
	--ssl-certificate-key /etc/letsencrypt/live/{YOUR DOMAIN NAME}/privkey.pem
sudo bench setup nginx
sudo service nginx reload

(Make sure that the frappe user has read access to /etc/letsencrypt/live/.)
