I have so far been unable to add a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate to my domain using the DH control panel options. Although the control panel says it has been installed successfully, https://<mydomain.com> is not reachable. Problem seems to be there is no .well-known directory is added to the server.
I’ve previously added Let’s Encrypt SSL certs successfully to my other domains that use DH shared hosting. But both the domains I host on a DH Private Server have this problem.
As explained in the DH help page for Let’s Encrypt, I temporarily deleted .htaccess (in case it was preventing creating of .well-known) but the directory still wasn’t created.
I’m now wondering if the problem is because my Private Server has Web Server set to NOT managed by Dreamhost? (it has to be set that way for the site.)
Has anyone any experience of this? And if it is not possible to use the DH control panel, what’s a good way of installing a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate (I have shell access)? Thank you.
