Got it to work! Instead of deploying the www......., I just deployed the name without www, since that seems to have been how it was called.

Thanks, also for the quick reply!!

I updated my pull request in GitHub including this fix: https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/pull/940
My code has been merged to ACME dev branch and can be deployed using

Code: Select all

--deploy-hook cpanel_uapi

Good news! Automatic renewal worked today and my first certificate got renewed without any manual intervention. The bad news is that I discovered that if you have multiple subdomains in one certificate, only the first domain will be deployed. If you use the following command to issue and deploy domains one by one, it should work fine for you:

Code: Select all

acme.sh --issue -d 2globalnomads.info -d www.2globalnomads.info --dns dns_gd

Code: Select all

acme.sh --deploy -d 2globalnomads.info --deploy-hook cpanel
My cpanel hook has been merged to the acme.sh master branch so it is now available for all new installations. The only functional difference compared to these instructions (and my original code) is the name of the hook. Instead of cpanel you need to use cpanel_uapi. Here is an example:

Code: Select all

acme.sh --deploy -d 2globalnomads.info --deploy-hook cpanel_uapi
Thanks a lot for helping me and happy hacking!

When I checked my shared GoDaddy server it's only using Red Hat 4.4 and they have no schedule upgrade because it's a shared server. I let them know I'm really unhappy about how slow they are on the upgrade since version 4 stopped being supported years ago. However, I doubt they'll do anything about it since they know I want to use Let's Encrypt which I think is shooting themself in the foot, but that's another subject.

When I went to https://certbot.eff.org/ it only listed RHEL 6 and CentOS/REHL 7 as options for using the Certbot ACME client with Red Hat. Does anyone know if I used RHEL 6 if it would cause issues on installing and renewing my SSL Certs?

I haven't tried certbot, but I am using ACME on multiple GoDaddy accounts on their Asia and Europe servers without issues. You can easily just install it and give it a try. If it does not work for you, let me know and I will help you.

I didn't see an ACME client just called ACME. This is the list Lets Encrypt gives as options: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/client-options/

It's listed as acme.sh. I've been working on that project and using Neil's script on 8 websites currently hosted on GoDaddy.
