Got it to work! Instead of deploying the www......., I just deployed the name without www, since that seems to have been how it was called.

Thanks, also for the quick reply!!

I updated my pull request in GitHub including this fix: https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/pull/940
My code has been merged to ACME dev branch and can be deployed using

Code: Select all

--deploy-hook cpanel_uapi

Good news! Automatic renewal worked today and my first certificate got renewed without any manual intervention. The bad news is that I discovered that if you have multiple subdomains in one certificate, only the first domain will be deployed. If you use the following command to issue and deploy domains one by one, it should work fine for you:

Code: Select all

acme.sh --issue -d 2globalnomads.info -d www.2globalnomads.info --dns dns_gd

Code: Select all

acme.sh --deploy -d 2globalnomads.info --deploy-hook cpanel
My cpanel hook has been merged to the acme.sh master branch so it is now available for all new installations. The only functional difference compared to these instructions (and my original code) is the name of the hook. Instead of cpanel you need to use cpanel_uapi. Here is an example:

Code: Select all

acme.sh --deploy -d 2globalnomads.info --deploy-hook cpanel_uapi
Thanks a lot for helping me and happy hacking!

When I checked my shared GoDaddy server it's only using Red Hat 4.4 and they have no schedule upgrade because it's a shared server. I let them know I'm really unhappy about how slow they are on the upgrade since version 4 stopped being supported years ago. However, I doubt they'll do anything about it since they know I want to use Let's Encrypt which I think is shooting themself in the foot, but that's another subject.

When I went to https://certbot.eff.org/ it only listed RHEL 6 and CentOS/REHL 7 as options for using the Certbot ACME client with Red Hat. Does anyone know if I used RHEL 6 if it would cause issues on installing and renewing my SSL Certs?

I haven't tried certbot, but I am using ACME on multiple GoDaddy accounts on their Asia and Europe servers without issues. You can easily just install it and give it a try. If it does not work for you, let me know and I will help you.

I didn't see an ACME client just called ACME. This is the list Lets Encrypt gives as options: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/client-options/

It's listed as acme.sh. I've been working on that project and using Neil's script on 8 websites currently hosted on GoDaddy.

I am myself considering ditching GoDaddy and moving to Dreamhost.
Unfortunately I can not recommend Dreamhost any longer. They have a serious configuration error in their email servers. If your email bounces, it takes 3 days before you get a notification. 24 hours should be maximum time for giving a delivery warning.

Dreamhost has refused to fix this problem. I discovered this issue when I notices a mail server configuration error. The emails sent from DreamHost to *@iway.na email addresses in Namibia never go through. Both sides blame each other and neither of them is interested in getting the issue solved. As a customer it is not my problem although both of them seem to think so. Good luck.

Thanks for all your shares. Will test this tonight.

Regarding Dreamhost, I was mostly quite happy with them for the last few years but they do have a lot of email problems and for the last 2 weeks, they've not replied to any support tickets. Not easy to find a decent, affordable hosting these days, it seems.

Please tell me if you find one. I will move there, too.
