Unable to install letsencrypt certificate



My YunoHost configuration

Hardware: Cubietruck
Internet access: ethernet at home
YunoHost version:
yunohost: 2.7.12 (stable)
yunohost-admin: 2.7.12 (stable)
moulinette: 2.7.12 (stable)
ssowat: 2.7.12 (stable)
Have you personalized your yunohost with some specifics configurations or do you use only the yunohost cli/webadmin tool ? basic

Description of my problem

Try to install a certificate for a second domain with command line:
yunohost domain cert-install your.domain.tld --no-checks --debug

I had no issue when I installed the first certificate.

What is exastly error 22?
What must be corrected?

Thanks in advance


Weeeeell as it says, error 22 is that the signature of the new certificate failed

The real question is to understand what’s the true error behind that :stuck_out_tongue:

and the logs says :


which isnt really helpful … Soooo I dunno what to do about this :confused: Somebody had a similar situation a few days ago and it just resolved by itself after a few days … I don’t understand what’s behind that :confused:

I think I have an issue to see the HTTP server…

How to check if HTTP server is really accessible?

Thank you in advance


Hmmm yea that’s really weird…

Well, are you able to access your server via http://yourdomain.tld both from inside your local network and from outside ? You can also use https://ports.yunohost.org/ to diagnose if port 80 looks open

(‘Connection aborted.’, BadStatusLine("’’",) really looks like a weird error. I see an issue here talking about something similar https://github.com/requests/requests/issues/2364 and it really looks like low-level network stuff… Do you have anything particular in your network setup somehow ?

I used the following command to check accessibility: curl http://your.domain.tld

From local network, I got the following response:

<head><title>302 Found</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>302 Found</h1></center>

From outside, I got the following response:

<head><title>302 Found</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>302 Found</h1></center>

Both responses are identical.

https://ports.yunohost.org gives me the below result.
However, I do not know why port 80 appears twice.

I found a solution in the following thread (it is in french): Renew LE certificat - Error: [Errno 22]

It is due to the fact I have a dynamic IPv4 address and this is not handle in YUNoHost.
I had to execute the following command:

yunohost service regen-conf dnsmasq

Now I can renew my LE certificat.
But installing a new certificate for another domain does not work.


This solution is useful.I will try this command to install letsencrypt certificate.

This solution worked wonderfully for me! Thank you so much!

I solved the issue by modifying /etc/hosts like explained in this page: localhost your.domain.tld

hey so, the install lets encrypt is greyed out on the side… so i tried the command but i only get this error [replaced my real domain with “mydomain.com” to post here but i promise its the right one.]

Meh … I dunno which lang you speak, but can you retry after running export LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 (or maybe also export LANG=en_US.utf8) ?

Those locale issues are fucking madness :expressionless:

You have to regenerate the nginx config, and then installing a letsencrypt certificate will work again!

sudo yunohost nginx regen-conf --force (un truc dans le genre)

Have you read the stacktrace…

thanks [russian]

that command also simply doesn’t work
