    Hello,
    OS Wheezy
    IPSConfig upgraded successfully to 3.1.1
    I see let's encrypt in the GUI, but I believe it is not installed.
    There is no /var/log/letsencrypt
    There is not /etc/letsencrypt
    How do you know if the required gears are installed and is it safe to run the following to install it?
    https://certbot.eff.org/#debianwheezy-apache
    Thanks in advance

    Thanks DonMcCoy,
    But my server is Wheezy, is it safe to do the install as in the Tutorial?

    yes the same method for wheezy, and don't forget to select no for the prompt window during setup, as ISPConfig will manage create/renewal of certificates.

    you can check that wheezy dist is listed at the official certbot site too: https://certbot.eff.org

    Thanks again,
    Installed it as per the tutorial you mentioned But I did not get the same screen where to answer Yes or No as I had domains so it was not the same question as in the tutorial.
    Now it seems that ISPonfig is not managing Let's encrypt. How to recover from this issue?
    Best regards,

    The screen might be a bit different, what matters is that you exited it without selecting a domain.

    Thanks for the reply, but it is too late I did select a dummy domain thinking it will not do much.
    Now, how do I recover?
    Thanks in advance,

    Try to rename /etc/letsencrypt directory.

    mv /etc/letsencrypt /etc/letsencrypt_bak
    mkdir /etc/letsencrypt
