Let's Encrypt renewals lead to "504: Gateway Time-out" error

Hello everybody,

I noticed today that I am unable to renew Let’s Encrypt certificates. It happens on several (Debian) servers, am I alone ? Here is the outup :

Requesting a certificate for virtualserver from Let’s Encrypt …
… request failed : Failed to request certificate :

I have the same problem. :-/

Letsencrypt prod api is down at the moment. See http://letsencrypt.status.io/.

Thank you, I thought my server wasn’t working!

The service is up and running again…

Thank you !
It’s ok, now. :slight_smile:

All right, thank you for sharing the info. Back to business :slight_smile:
