    The let's encrypt feature doesn't work on FreeBSD 9.

    After the user clicks on "Save"

    Code:
    /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/letsencrypt.sh: 1: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string
    /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/letsencrypt.sh: 131: Syntax error: Error in command substitution
    The script looks normal to me


    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    # This script is written by Martynas Bendorius and DirectAdmin
    # It is used to create/renew let's encrypt certificate for a domain
    # Official DirectAdmin webpage: http://www.directadmin.com
    # Usage:
    # ./letsencrypt.sh <domain> <key-size>
    MYUID=`/usr/bin/id -u`
    if [ "${MYUID}" != 0 ]; then
        echo "You require Root Access to run this script";
        exit 0;
    fi
    ...

    Thanks for the report. I had found a few incorrect quote styles in the file. I've fixed those up.
    Binaries with the fix should be compiled either very late Feb 2nd, or early Feb 3rd (./directadmin o)

    Thanks for the fix John. I was able to generate a certificate.
    A couple of usability issues:
    • The cert generation should use AJAX. Currently users get the spinning wheel, which could last a while on less powerful servers, and in the end get to see everything that has happened (badly formatted). I think users should be shown progress on a properly designed page
    • There is no way of knowing that a certificate was generated via let's encrypt and that it's going to auto-renew. I think the field should be greyed out and a let's encrypt option ticked. The user would have to change option in order to be able to modify the cert. Without it, admins don't have a quick way to see if it's a custom cert or not. I'm guessing there must be a variable in the user's http config which says what it is
    • There should be a counter in the admin zone with the current number of renewals, etc, because of the rate-limit. Users could also be made aware of the per domain limit, but I don't think many will hit it

    Another problem with LetsEncrypt. The script doesn't read the DOCROOT variable and thus fails installing certs for domains which use it.

    And fixing the script doesn't work. The DA binary needs to be updated as well to create the well-known folder

    Something should be clarified in the documentation

    Rate limit on certificates per Domain is now 5 per 7 days
    Let's encrypt considers every subdomain as a subdomain, unlike other CA which consider a subdomain a separate domain. And since they don't offer wildcard certs, it means you may hit that limit quickly if you use a lot of subdomains.

    When filling in a CSR without a company name, the user gets the following message

    Company must only contain letters, numbers, spaces, and/or periods

    if our licensed ip actually not in use but we are using DA through a hosting company (I have dedicated on Wholesale Internet, Inc.) can we still d/l and test?
    I have lifetime license assigned to vps ip however DA not actually installed right now. vps is just bare centos install with nothing installed.
    so I have access to the files..just not sure its "legal"

    Quite a lot of nice new features. Would you also be so kind to respond to the question about an updated skin?

    Also, is the big update for Admin Backups with direct tarring of mail data scheduled for 1.51?

  17. #17
    A new skin is in the works. There is a very small screenshot of it on the new website that is about ready to go into testing. Look for an announcement soon

    Ah yes, the direct email tar. I might try and take a quick look at that to see if we can squeeze it in to 1.50.0, as it would be quite worthwhile.
    May bump the release of 1.50.0 a few days, depending on how that goes.

    FYI, I've just finished a new feature to be able to restore the SPF records from the backup:

    Very good update, As we can see, DA already working perfect. but if can add other functions like online Shopping cart system etc. i am sure customer can pay adition fee for DA. and this also will increase the sales
