letsencrypt challenge not completing
« on: April 22, 2021, 05:20:21 AM »
Hello everybody

Im desperated and i hope somebody can help me here.
Im using SME Server 9.2 with letsencrypt. but after i changed to API V2 in config now i get this error allso in testmode:

when i make dehydratet -c   it comes:

Error registering account key. See message above for more information.
rm: remove from „/etc/dehydrated/accounts/[OBF]/
registration_info.json“

the file does not exist i checked.
Is there a possibility to clean up completely letsencrypt (remove all files and configs) and start installation from letsencrypt by scratch?

i tried to uninstall, rebootet and reinstalled, but same error cames up again. The problem is all my domains now have no certificate :-(

config:

    ACCEPT_TERMS=yes
    API=2
    configure=all
    email=*@*.com
    hookScript=disabled
    status=test

i tried allso:

config delprop modSSL crt
config delprop modSSL key
config delprop modSSL CertificateChainFile

i think i have installed both contribs:

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install dehydrated 
and
yum install smeserver-letsencrypt --enablerepo=smecontribs


i will really apreciate your help.

Thank you verry much

this should clean your dehydrated installation

Code: [Select]
rm -rf /etc/dehydrated/accounts/* /etc/dehydrated/certs/* /etc/dehydrated/chains/*
do a backup first ;)

Version: dehydrated-0.6.5-13.el6.fws.noarch



Hello Jean-Philippe

Thank you verry much for your fast answer.

I did what you wrote but the error is still here:


# dehydrated -c
# INFO: Using main config file /etc/dehydrated/config
+ Generating account key...
+ Registering account key with ACME server...
Certificate authority doesn't allow registrations.


Error registering account key. See message above for more information.
rm: Remove of: „/etc/dehydrated/accounts/[OBF]/registration_info.json“ not possible: File or Directory not found
[root@server ~]#



When i delete manually the directory with:

rm -r [OBF]/

after dehydratet -c   it regenarates the same directory again :-(

when i uncomment in the config:

CA="https://acme-staging.api.letsencrypt.org/directory"
to
#CA="https://acme-staging.api.letsencrypt.org/directory"


 dehydrated]# dehydrated -c


i get this error:

# INFO: Using main config file /etc/dehydrated/config

I think the mention the v1 is no longer supported and you must use v2 in the error messages might be a clue.
The wiki makes mention of this and how to resolve it.

Hi Sages

Thank you verry much for your answer.

As you can see i have this config:

# config show letsencrypt
letsencrypt=service
   ACCEPT_TERMS=yes
   API=2
   configure=none
   email=####@#####.###
   hookScript=disabled
   status=test

do you think is bether to change instead from API 2  to API = auto as i had mixed V1 and V2 certificates?

My goal is to make all certificates of all domains new under V2


Is it possible that i have to remove and regenerate:  /home/e-smith/files/ibays/Primary/html/.well-known/acme-challenge 

?    That directory is full....

Appreciating your help  thank you

My guess is you did not fully followed the wiki and did set your DB but did not expand your templates.

can you please FIRST paste here what returns

Code: [Select]
# cat /etc/dehydrated/config
then only after copying here the result, try
Code: [Select]
rm -rf /etc/dehydrated/accounts/* /etc/dehydrated/certs/* /etc/dehydrated/chains/*
config setprop letsencrypt API 2
expand-template /etc/dehydrated/config
expand-template /etc/dehydrated/domains.txt
expand-template /usr/bin/hook-script.sh
dehydrated -c

beware there is a day limit of tries, after that you get your IP banned. So make sure all your domains listed in /etc/dehydrated/domains.txt DO point to your current IP

you did not returned the result of

the next possible issue is you have an outdated version

i will add the information, that when the certs were stopped, i tried to do that what reetP told to me under this post:

https://forums.contribs.org/index.php/topic,54276.msg284403.html#msg284403

Now i see that all hes comments are deleted.

and other information is that i istalled years ago both repos:

smeserver-letsencrypt + dehydratet

it worked under V1 for years.

maybe it helps .... i hope so

Thank you verry much

please try the following (I see you are in an accounts directory , which I presume is /etc/dehydrated/accounts, i really want you to get away from there and really be in root home when running dehydrated, I have seen weird behaviours already when in some path)


Code: [Select]

from what I have received (the beginning is missing)
you did not used the test staging but the v2
CA=https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory


you successfully registered
Code: [Select]
+ echo '+ Registering account key with ACME server...'
+ echo '+ Fetching account ID...'
+ echo '+ Done!'
+ Done!
+ exit 0

so you have now an active account and you just have to do the following (yes I want you in root home)

Code: [Select]
cd
/usr/bin/dehydrated -c

just to check

Code: [Select]
ll /root/config
and

Code: [Select]
whereis dehydrated

I guess you checked this is really your ip

"Invalid response from http://de*-ver*.ch/.well-known/acme-challenge/GaM1p7****************xNo9K_y_9U7Onw [81.6.*.*]

is your Ibay configured to force SSL connection ?
is the Primary ibay configured to force SSL connection (if domain not linked to the Primary ibay)?

you have to allow non ssl connection on the /.well-known/acme-challenge path, meaning you need to disable force ssl connection Primary ibay. If an important site is there I suggest moving it on another ibay


Finally is the ibay password protected ?

Hi  Jean-Philippe

im really gracefull for your help.

- the masterdomain of the server points to  "primary i-bay"  and was SSL forced, now i have it disabled,
  but by htaccess there is a rewriteroule with goto https. Think should not be a problem.

- the primary directory is not pw protected.

Should i bether go to test mode to make a retry with etc/dehydrated -c ?
I'm scared that i arrive at the try limits...

classic test is as follow

Code: [Select]
echo "pk" > /home/e-smith/files/ibays/Primary/html/.well-known/acme-challenge/testme
then tries to it
http://myserver.ch/.well-known/acme-challenge/testme

from the internet. Your phone on the LTE might be your fiend there.

when you get a correct access you can proceed and delete the test file

Code: [Select]
rm /home/e-smith/files/ibays/Primary/html/.well-known/acme-challenge/testme

https redirection should not be a problem according to the let's encrypt website...

Sorry for the late answer - i had to bring my son to bed :-)

ok first i pointet the server-maindomain to  "primary i-bay"  and it worked not.  Auth. cert. error.
then i pointet the server-maindomain to an other i-bay and it results:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /.well-known/acme-challenge/testme on this server because the file is not there -  but its the best to point to primary isnt'it ?

 db accounts show Primary
Primary=ibay
    AllowOverride=All
    CgiBin=enabled
    FollowSymLinks=enabled
    Group=shared
    Modifiable=no
    Name=Primary i-bay
    PasswordSet=no
    Passwordable=no
    PublicAccess=global
    Removable=no
    SSL=enabled
    UserAccess=wr-*-rd-group

i did:

db accounts setprop Primary SSL disabled
[root@g-server ~]# signal-event console-save

and now is accessable ...

I wait your ok to retry

cd
/usr/bin/dehydrated -c

in test mode or in enabled mode ?

why is he now trying to feetch from "http://www.g-server.domain.ch" with "www".
Maybe caused from the htaccess to force www in primary ?

I cannot make an A Record on my dns service now, because the e-mail for validation login is not working of cause the certificate trouble on server.

I cant get any mails at the moment.

Thank you in advance for your help.

without the full picture and just an isolated error it is hard to help. I am not reading in cristal balls ;)

do your htaccess has a redirection to www? i would wonder why if your dns are not pointing to the server. but still rather inclined that the domain is really the one verified.

as far as you keep on giving partial output, obfuscate all domains as this is dns issue / redirection we can not help you more.

finally you can access your server for mail using a self signed ssl certificate. just need to accept it.

Hi Jean-Philippe

Thank you for answering me at that time - im now 24h at work...

Of course

g-server.domain.ch   points to my server
www.domain.ch points to my server

but not www.g-server.domain.ch
i cant understand why he says that   it needs an "A" record to DNS  for www.g-server.domain.ch

i deleted now  the htaccess entry  which makes  from  domain.ch -> www.domain.ch   because it can be that
it will maybe redirect  g-server.domain.ch  to www.g-server.domain.ch  and that may cause  the error 400.

In the past i never changed something. For me unclear i have to change all this settings in primary i-bay.

If you find a cristal-ball, please send me allso one :-)
