Hi,

What is the equivalent letskencrypt command for the following command line?

$ letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone -d mydomain.com

I don't know---I've never used letsencrypt-auto. The letskencrypt(1) manpage will tell you its usage.

The problem I'm facing is that it says 'privkey.pem' file must exist. But it does not say how I should generate it.

This is the command I'm running:

$ sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib ./letskencrypt -m mydomain.com
letskencrypt: /etc/ssl/letsencrypt/mydomain.com: -c directory must exist
letskencrypt: /etc/ssl/letsencrypt/private/mydomain.com/privkey.pem: -k file must exist
letskencrypt: /var/www/letsencrypt: -C directory must exist
letskencrypt: /etc/letsencrypt/mydomain.com/privkey.pem: -f file must exist

Does the new letskencrypt(1) address this in its EXAMPLES? In short, you must create all directories and files unless -n is passed, in which case the account key (not the domain key) is created. Usually, keys are created with the openssl(1) command, as now noted in the example.

Is it normal behaviour for the other letsencrypt clients to create the domain key if requested?

I don't know how other letsencrypt clients work. This is my first attempt to get it all running, since I was waiting for a small, tiny and secure client for OpenBSD first :) I do appreciate the new EXAMPLES section.

The -N flag in the latest release will also do this. Thanks!

Thank you! I will try again, because yesterday it didn't work.
