Certificate File Placement Bug with Apache failure!
« on: December 28, 2019, 05:11:27 pm »
So for adding ssl for domains using let's encrypt doesn't work correctly with apache2 and causes apache2 to fail on restart. Apparently Apache template isn't pointing in the right place and it doesn't seem to update properly when you add a domain name to the panel and then add an ssl certificate to it.

Code: [Select]
root@ehcp:/var/www/vhosts# service apache2 status
● apache2.service - The Apache HTTP Server
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apache2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

Dec 29 00:08:06 ehcp systemd[1]: Failed to start The Apache HTTP Server.

The domain I added the ssl to was https://towclaim.com

Domains on this server are:
https://Lorentedford.com
https://voipham.com
https://Ltcraft.net
https://newwavesucks.com
https://kc9zhv.com
https://towclaim.com
https://ilhamradio.org

Some are using the ssl certificate some are not for some reason.

Here is a copy of the apache2 template for lorentedford.com

Every one of the domains listed has got a let's encrypt key but doesn't show up for some reason by default correctly.

Remove all custom certificates and then try using Let's Encrypt.  Let's Encrypt certificates are never stored in the /phptmpdir.  They will be found and are referenced by the config files in /etc/letsencrypt
