• Letsencrpt Synchronet

    So I installed Letsencrypt and got a certificate. Of course it doesn't work cause I don't know what I'm doing. I thought Synchronet Web is a web server No?
    I don't want to run my BBS web on an Apache Server. I just want to run the Synchronet Webv4. So how do I get https on havens.synchronetbbs.org running echickens webv4?? If the BBS runs on a Ubuntu server what is the server software considered? Synchronet or Other? This is mind boggeling. Letsenrypt.org has all kinds of install options Too many options in my opinion.
    I just want https to work with webv4. Ack!

    If you figure it out, post the solution, but I do know that you cannot
    use the letsencrypt.pem files with SBBS.

    Did you use the certbot script from letsyncrypt via sudo apt install python-certbot-apache?

    You should be obtaining the letsyncrypt.key by running /sbbs/exec/jsexec letsyncrypt.js or using /sbbs/exec/certtool.js

    What ports are you running sbbs web on http 80 / https 443)?

    Do you have another web server (ie apache2 or nginx) running on the
    server on port 80? If yes that is what is getting the certificate not
    SBBS ... look in /ect/letsencrypt/live and see if you have havens.synchronetbbs.org list, if yes that means sbbs cannot authenticate

    Try using the stock sbbs web ui (/sbbs/web/root) and see which Synchronet
    Web Server you are using (current Synchronet Web Server 1.700, though I
    am using 1.699)

    I am no expert and could never get letsyncrypt to work with sbbs but I do
    have letsencrypt working with Apache ...

    Just a few things to look at.

    You need to follow the instructions at http://wiki.synchro.net/module:letsyncrypt

    I thought Synchronet Web is a web server
    No?

    Synchronet includes a web (HTTP/HTTPS) server, yes.

    I don't want to run my BBS web on an Apache Server.

    I don't suggest that you do.

    I just want to ru the Synchronet Webv4.

    ec's "Synchronet Webv4" is a Web UI (CSS/JS/HTML), not a serer itself, it is just a set of files that can be served up by the Synchronet web server.

    So how do I get https on havens.synchronetbbs.org

    By following the instructions on that wiki page.

    running echickens webv4??

    The web UI you use shouldn't matter.

    If the BBS runs on a Ubuntu server what is the
    server software considered? Synchronet or Other?

    Synchronet.

    This is mind boggeling.
    Letsenrypt.org has all kinds of install options Too many options in my opinion.

    You don't need to follow any instructions from letsencrypt.org.

    I just want https to work with webv4. Ack!

    Didn't I just recently respond to one of your posts on this subject with a list of follow-up questions?

    Yes I ran jsexec /sbbs/exec/letsyncrypt.js --force it compiles then locks up. By lock up I mean it stalls and I can't get the prompt back with ctl-C or ctrl z ctrl-x or even ctrl-d

    What ports are you running sbbs web on http 80 / https 443)?

    Yes http = 80 https 443

    Do you have another web server (ie apache2 or nginx) running on the
    server on port 80? If yes that is what is getting the certificate not
    SBBS
    I asked Marisa I don't want Apache. I'll make sure it's no longer a factor. I have full access. How would I take Synchronet Web off Apache Server if that's the issue?
    ... look in /ect/letsencrypt/live and see if you have
    havens.synchronetbbs.org list, if yes that means sbbs cannot authenticate Try using the stock sbbs web ui (/sbbs/web/root) and see which Synchronet

    Yes there is a certificate in /etc/letsencrypt/live/havens.synchronetbbs.org


    Ok I'l try using /sbbs/web/root instead of /sbbs/webv4

    HA! Now I lost ecweb4. I hate foolin with stuff I know nothing about. All these different servers, who's on first, what's on second, I don't know is on third. Back in the day I had 4-5 different SyOps to call if I had a problem And I didn't have to explain my entire BBS system to solve a problem. Sigh ..those were the days eh? I wonder if it would be easier to start from scratch again?

    At least you're able to admit that. The problem is that you don't
    seem to want to correct that.

    Sometimes........ you *MUST* do some reading/research (rather than
    just randomly enable options in some config file and cross your
    fingers).

    I suggest you start here:

    Try using the stock sbbs web ui (/sbbs/web/root) and see which Synchronet

    Ok I'l try using /sbbs/web/root instead of /sbbs/webv4

    Look at sbbs.ini and find out what your web server's document root actually is. It's the RootDirectory key in the [Web] section. No need for trial and error when the answer is available.
