Using a Free SSL Certificate from "Let's Encrypt"
« on: February 13, 2018, 04:07:51 pm »

We have a big problem with Let's Encrypt last day.

Information about it here:

Running the script :
/usr/local/centovacast/sbin/setssl letsencrypt example.com

with our hostname and not example.com, gives us the followng:

# INFO: Using main config file /usr/local/centovacast/etc/dehydrated.conf
WARNING: can't open config file: /usr/local/openssl/openssl.cnf
ERROR: Lock file '/usr/local/centovacast/etc/ssl/lock' present, aborting.

Any help ASAP is appreciated!!!

You can get the certificate yourself (using certbot) and install it manually following these instructions:


Go to the "Installing Your Own Certificate" section and read carefully, but the TL;DR is:

"After you receive your SSL certificate from the certificate authority, you can install it into the Centova Cast web server using the following line (assuming that certbot put your certs in its default path):

/usr/local/centovacast/sbin/setssl /etc/letsencrypt/live/yourdomain/privkey.pem /etc/letsencrypt/live/yourdomain/cert.pem

Hope it helps,
