Hello,

I have an installation with CentOS 6/.10 and DirectAdmin 1.61.3

I was trying to make Lets Encrypt possible, i've tried it via https://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=648 , no error there but when the user logs in in DirectAdmin the SSL menu is not allowed.

What could I change to make it work?

I'm rather new to this so bare with me.

Thanks in advance

Erwin

CentOS 6 will officially reach its end of life in November so maybe upgrading the OS could help and gets a job done. CentOS is actually at version 8 now.

As for your problem, I have never seen a SSL panel with no configuration options, or disabled ones for that matter. when an option is configured it is made the primary panel but yeah, never nothing.

Try running the following, if this works everything should be fine.

Code:
/usr/local/directadmin/scripts/letsencrypt.sh request example.com

This is the result :

/usr/local/directadmin/scripts/letsencrypt.sh request tacontrolsystem.nl

Exiting.

What is going on?

It is suggesting the domain is not under your control. You should try using a domain added to the system? Past that I can't help.

And yes, having SSL enabled would be a good start.

Do you perhaps have force SSL enabled? You shouldn't do that before getting a valid certificate.

Yes, the domain is under my control and added via a user on this server.
Ik look into the SSL situation
