Do you know why this file is missing and how I can restore/generate it ?

Hmm, do you happen to have backup and restored your system on another machine ? (Now that I think about it, we probably don’t backup/restore this file)

Anyway, maybe you can try something like

yunohost domain cert-install yourdomain.tld --force

(or maybe we’ll have to go back to a self-signed certificate before doing that if it doesnt work)

First, thanks for your help.

Yes the system has been restored from a backup (on the same machine). But before restoring the backup, some file might have been lost on the disk (not on the backup).

I’m pretty sure I have already tried the domain command line. I’ll try again tonight when I have access to the server.

If it doesn’t work, you suggest I switch to a self-signed certificate, and the back to a regular certificate ? Is that your point ?


So something like :

# Back to a self-signed certificate
yunohost domain cert-install yourdomain.tld --self-signed --force
# Now reinstall a Lets Encrypt cert
yunohost domain cert-install yourdomain.tld

It works with this command :smiley: Thanks @Aleks ! The certificate was renewed before expiration date.

yunohost domain cert-install yourdomain.tld --force

I have an error on one domain only (other ones, Let’s Encrypt install work !) :

I don’t know what to do…

I had the same trouble when migrating last week. Is there a ticket we can open or follow, regarding letsencrypt_account.pem ?
