Let's Encrypt with subdomain not working?


I’m new with Easy Engine and I wan’t to create a certificate with let’s encrypt and add proxy with nginx to

The system is necessary because i need to be fast, and lot of subdomain need this action in the future.

For the proxy all working with this command : ee site create mysuper.subdomain.fr --proxy=

For let’s encrypt, the command fail : ee site update mysuper.subdomain.fr --letsencrypt

I get this error message : Unable to setup, Let’s Encrypt Please make sure that your site is pointed to same server on which you are running Let’s Encrypt Client to allow it to verify the site automatically.

So the subdomain point on my server, and with the let’s encrypt (no easy engine), it’s working fine

Can you help me ? Sorry for the bad english i’m french …


I think there is no support for LE on proxied sites yet.

BTW, do you have www.sub.domain.com pointing to the same IP as sub.domain.com?

Thanks for your reply

Yes, this is basic. When you searched the forum prior to posting your question didn’t you find such information?

Yes I have to search and make the necessary modifications on the server:
