    With pre-existing SSL rules, forcing the web going to SSL
    especially when migrating (such as Apache Directives, htaccess etc)
    Let's Encrypt will fail
    Not being able to run SSL right, the procedure will not be activated
    makes sense!?

    Hope this can be useful for someone ;)

    Greetings to all

    means it works with a site clean of any SSL configuration
    for e.g. not with migrated sites didn't use Let's Encrypt before

    Nope. It works that way as well, provided, the LE certs are transferred properly too and the LE client remains the same on both servers.

    Migrated sites are working fine as well, did that many times using the Migration Tool, you just can't change to a different Let's encrypt client. So if the old server uses certbot, then the new system must use certbot as well. That's mentioned in the migration tutorial too.

    in my last case:
    • old ISP version
    • old certificate purchased
    • apache directives to force use SSL
    • migrated with the Tool to the new ISPConfig + acme version
    you understand.. I had to clean up something first
    I was talking about truly desperate cases like mine :)

    Absolutely NOT critical about ISPConfig, using for years, the GREAT Migration Tool started using now or Let's Encrypt..

    Thanks to all, thank you so much for your time
