Upgrade ACME Client

We are attempting to use letEncrypt... (goDaddy want too much money for SSL cert.... )

Error registering: Account creation on ACMEv1 is disabled. Please upgrade your ACME client to a version that supports ACMEv2 / RFC 8555. See https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/end-of-life-plan-for-acmev1/88430 for details.

How to do we upgrade to ACMEv2?

Needs work


Ha! Just minutes after I wrote you, my South African developer SLACKed me a link to Certbot. It required few lines in terminal on Ubuntu to get the repository. I was thinking I would need to get a cert myself and in fact, download a copy of the CR. But after CertBot was installed the link on the domain VM:

Server Configuration"--> SSL Cert --> LetsEncyrpt

it worked out of the box. No longer complained about ACME...

In case someone is lurking on this tread:


We needed this in .htaccess

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} wailuarivernoni\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://wailuarivernoni.com/$1 [R,L]

Ticket Closed! Yay!

Disclaimer: I don't know if VM had to have, or used, the Certification Signing Request (0000_csr-certbot.pem) that I had already put in /home/#my_domain#/ level of the site before I clicked on the VM panel: Server Configuration"--> SSL Cert --> LetsEncyrpt
