Letsencrypt doesn't create certificate



I’m trying to create ssl but nothing just happens. What should I do to fix it?


There are several common reasons:

  1. You have logged in to admin UI via IP address. To make modern SSL certificate you need domain name that resolves to your IP address. Login to admin UI via DNS name and Flussonic will take your hostname from your browser, not from your hostname on server. Sorry, we cannot rely on server hostname, because in 95% it is not a good name =(

  2. You have flussonic running not on port 80. For example, you have apache there. Delete apache or nginx from your server (if you know how to configure them together, you will not ask such simple questions about letsencrypt =) and allow Flussonic to use ports 80 and 443. To check this try to open http://yourdomainname
    There must be flussonic.

  3. You have configured some other ssl providers and perhaps your system is in misconfigured state. Delete /etc/flussonic/flussonic.key, /etc/flussonic/flussonic.crt, /etc/flussonic/flussonic-ca.crt, restart flussonic and try again. It will help.
