LetsEncrypt-APP error

i have installed the LetsEncrypt APP on my UCS 4.2.3. I have a fixed IP adress and forwarded the Port 80 and 443 to my server.
My Domain is in the config, host -A IP-ADDRESS shows my UCS. Also my Backup-DynDNS Address.

i had set the ucs with my fixed IP. bt i always get Errors, when i start the /usr/share/univention-letsencrypt/setup-letsencrypt

this is the error:

Parsing account key...

could anyone tell me how to fix this problem?


Hello @volker.grabbe

this error means, that the app has received an invalid HTTP status code from the Let’s Encrypt servers while trying to download the signed certificate.
I just tested the app and it currently works on my test machine, so I’d kindly ask you to re-try the setup, because I assume it was a temporary problem on Let’s Encrypt’s side.

There was also a maintenance window for Let’s Encrypt’s infrastructure on the 15th of February, so if you tried getting a certificate in the evening on that day it might be the cause for problems.

Best regards,
Valentin Heidelberger

Hi @volker.grabbe

Did you get this to work? I have the identical problem in 2019 :slight_smile:
