Wheezy | Let's Encrypt not working!


I am on v103 Wheezy. I did a clean image install on my test sdcard.

I installed LASP Stack and Lets Encrypt via dietpi-software.

The Let’s Encrypt installation did finish without any errors after all but THIS is where the installation process did freeze for about 7 minutes.

After the Lets Encrypt installation i ran the new dietpi-letsencrypt command and THIS was the result.

All of this was done on a super fresh dietpi v103 installation with zero modifications.

How should i proceed?


Hi Zombie,

I can confirm Lets Encrypt is fully functional on Debian Jessie.

The lets encrypt project is still currently in beta, so the issues you experienced may be related to that. I’ll run some tests on Wheezy and see if I can find a resolution. I’ll let you know what I find.

Ok, replicated the same issue on my Wheezy install.

Appears Letsencrypt-auto is installing Python 2.7 and causes InsecurePlatformWarning: https://urllib3.readthedocs.org/en/latest/security.html#insecureplatformwarning

So i removed Python2.7 and manually installed Python3:

apt-get purge python2.7*
apt-get install python3 python3-dev

Which results in:

Cannot find any Pythons... please install one!
./letsencrypt-auto: 103: [: Illegal number: 1:
./letsencrypt-auto: 105: [: Illegal number: 1:

ImportError: No module named __future__

I’ll have to disable the Lets Encrypt installation option on Wheezy. At least until a fix, or workaround can be found.

Ok. No Problem. I hope the Lets Encrypt Team still care about wheezy.

THIS is what i have been working with for a while now and it works just fine.

Interesting, thanks for the info.

I’ve left the documentation for setting up a SSL cert in a similar method:
Optional - Alternative Enable SSL (https):I believe this is pretty much the same as your method? To be used on a fresh install of LAMP/LASP.
