    Hello, I am on the Linux version of Synchronet and i have enables lets encrypt to enable https. I keep getting this error:

    Fri Aug 11 2023 12:00 am bbs.piratebbs.com ERROR occurred:
    evnt SYNCRYPT !JavaScript /sbbs/exec/load/acmev2.js line 447: Error: get_authorization request did not return 200

    Here is the ctrl/letsyncrypt.ini:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Increase the log level to "Debug" and you will get more detail (the actual HTTP response) in the log as well, and that should direct you to the root problem.

    I set the LogLevel to Debugging and this is the error I received from lets encrypt....
    evnt SYNCRYPT !JavaScript : uncaught exception: Authorization failed... https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/authz-v3/255855316306
    If letsencrypt is broke I dont mind putting a purchased cert on it, I just cant find any instructions on how to install a purchased cert.
    Thanks for your help and the cool bbs.

    If you open that link it has more detail:
    Invalid response from http://piratebbs.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/99I54V05pPzENAoPwfzSkFoqrm2s52bA4jrfKJhdjNg: 404"

    If you look at your web server log output from that same time, you should see that request and determine the cause from the subsequent error message. Also double check that your web root dir actually has this .well-known/acme-challenge directory created in it (by letsyncrypt.js). If it doesn't, that likely means you specified a different (wrong) directory location in your letsyncrypt.ini file.


    If letsencrypt is broke I dont mind putting a purchased cert on it, I just cant find any instructions on how to install a purchased cert.

    LetsEncrypt (and LetSyncrypt) work fine. You just have something configured wrong. Keep look at the directory contents and the output (and follow the links) and you'll figure it out.

    Got it working. Looks like I setup two domains and the second one wasnt being served. Must be something in the httpd.conf file but im not sure where that is. :)

    Good to hear.

    being served. Must be something in the httpd.conf file but im not sure where that is. :)

    Synchronet doesn't use an httpd.conf file, so not sure what you're referring to there (an Apache http config file?).

    I was just trying to figure out how to have the website load up on piratebbs.com and its CNAME bbs.piratebbs.com.
