"Requesting a certificate failed ... sh: /root/letsencrypt/letsencrypt: Is a directory


Just tried using LetsEncrypt via Virtualmin, and I am getting this error message:

Requesting a certificate for xxxxxxx.com, www.xxxxxxx.com from Let's Encrypt ..
.. request failed :

I installed letsencrypt via yum, and when running letsencrypt from the command line, I am getting this message:

No installers are available on your OS yet; try running "letsencrypt certonly" to get a cert you can install manually

I also tried git cloning the latest letsencrypt, but then I got a failure as well that said

<pre> sh /root/letsencrypt/letsencrypt is a directory</pre>


Which Linux distribution and version are you running? I didn't know any offered Let's Encrypt as a YUM package yet.

Running CentOS 7

[root@host letsencrypt]# yum install letsencrypt

What's in the /root/letsencrypt/letsencrypt directory on your system?

I also downloaded the letsencrypt-auto script before installing it with yum :)
