On service cert renewal last night on 2 machines:

The system failed to acquire a signed certificate from the cPanel Store because of the following error: (XID yhjh8r) The cPanel Store returned an error (X::TemporarilyUnavailable) in response to the request “POST ssl/certificate/whm-license/90-day”: We were unable to process your request. Please try again later.

We're getting this, too. Second day in a row.

You can run AutoSSL manually through WHM >> Manage AutoSSL for each user, or you can run the /usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check command with either of these two options:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check --username
OR
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autossl_check --all

Thank you @cPRex

Perhaps I'm not understanding the warning, then.

For the past 2 days, the server has sent me an email with the warning I posted earlier. "The system failed to acquire a signed certificate from the cPanel Store" etc.

However, for the last 2 days, when I check the AutoSSL logs in WHM, there are logs there with timestamps more than 6 hours after the email warnings, and the log is filled with success TLS statuses. (As far as I can tell, the only ones that are on-error are for domains no longer on the server, which should be removed.)

So, what does all that mean? Thanks!

Hey @cPRex we got that email warning again. I noticed that our server's main certificate expires on Feb 25, 2022. Could that be the certificate the server is trying to renew? How far in advance does the server try to renew that certificate?

Anyway, I opened a ticket as you suggested. #94413175

Thanks!

I'm also seeing this behavior on a server 5-days in a row now during the nightly cron the same as the first post:

AutoSSL is failing and some of our SSL certificates have now expired as a result!

This error appears in the AutoSSL logs for the domains that have expired:

"The response to the HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) “POST” request from “https://store.cpanel.net/json-api/ssl/certificate/free” indicated an error (500, Internal Server Error): <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF/…"

EDIT: Now getting "9:41:41 AM The “cPanel (powered by Sectigo)” provider cannot currently accept incoming requests. The system will try again later."
