    Nginx 1.17.x
    MariaDB 5.5/10.x
    How was the initial letsencrypt ssl certificate obtained ? Which method ?
    • Was the domain nginx vhost alreadying created prior or new domain nginx vhost site setup for first time ?
    • Via centmin.sh menu option 2, 22, /usr/bin/nv ?
    • If you ran centmin.sh menu option 2 or 22, which letsencrypt option did you select from
      Code (Text):
      Setup full Nginx vhost + Wordpress + WP Plugins
      Enter vhost domain name you want to add (without www. prefix): acme3.domain1.com
      Create a self-signed SSL certificate Nginx vhost? [y/n]: n
      Get Letsencrypt SSL certificate Nginx vhost? [y/n]: y
      You have 4 options:
      1. issue staging test cert with HTTP + HTTPS
      2. issue staging test cert with HTTPS default
      3. issue live cert with HTTP + HTTPS
      4. issue live cert with HTTPS default
      Enter option number 1-4: 1
    • Via addons/acmetool.sh ? which specific command ? examples
      Code (Text):
      ./acmetool.sh issue acme.domain.com
      Code (Text):
      ./acmetool.sh issue acme.domain.com live
      Code (Text):
      ./acmetool.sh issue acme.domain.com d
      Code (Text):
      ./acmetool.sh issue acme.domain.com lived
    • What was order of steps you did ? Did you run centmin.sh menu option 2 first with letsencrypt ? Then did you run addons/acmetool.sh afterwards ?


    There are various steps you can do to troubleshoot failed letsencrypt issuances, renews, reissues etc.
    • acmetool.sh logs all command line or shell menu runs to log files at /root/centminlogs. To troubleshoot, copy the contents of the log run and post contents of log to pastebin.com or gist.github.com and share link in this thread. To find the log list the logs in ascending date order
      Code (Text):
      ls -lahrt /root/centminlogs
    • For direct acmetool.sh runs, there should be a 2nd & 3rd & 4th log in format /root/centminlogs/centminmod_${DT}_nginx_addvhost_nv.log and /root/centminlogs/acmetool.sh-debug-log-$DT.log and /root/centminlogs/acmesh-issue_*.log or /root/centminlogs/acmesh-reissue_*.log which would need to be included via separate pastebin.com or gist.github.com post.
    • Enable acmetool.sh debug mode. In persistent config file at /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc (create it if doesn't exist) add and enable acmetool.sh debug mode which gives much more verbose letsencrypt issuance process information when you re-run acmetool.sh or centmin.sh menu options 2, 22 or /usr/bin/nv command lines.
      Code (Text):
    Without the answers to above questions and logs, there is nothing to help troubleshoot.
