I’ve been using my droplet for over a year now, running nginx on an Ubuntu 18 system. I use Let’s Encrypt to automatically renew SSL certificates, but I started receiving errors for the renewal process.
Thus, I asked the Let’s Encrypt community, and got some really valuable help. Read the discussion here: https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/timeout-after-connect-your-server-may-be-slow-or-overloaded/128158
The last suggestion from the person who helped me (_az) implied something could be wrong with the server, as the responses I get indicate a problem with the network i/o. The first issue I encountered was related to the Let’s Encrypt validation server talking to the droplet, and now the issue is the droplet talking to the Let’s Encrypt API).
Can any of you help me out, based on the logs (see the link to Let’s Encrypt Community I posted), or help me find the issue here? I really need to be able to renew me certificates, and I want to make sure everything is OK with the droplet, otherwise it’s kind of useless to keep paying for it.
Thanks in advance!
