2nd Let's Encrypt Address Broke Apache

Problem Description
I was tinkering with my config options trying to solve a different problem and screwed up apache. I had a working web address and when I attempted to add a second address that was listed under Let’s Encrypt it disrupted Apache’s config file.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Login to Freedombox.
  2. Go to Let’s Encrypt.
  3. Attempt to add second web address.

Expected Results
I expected for certification to go through.

Actual results
I am unable to access my server except through SSH and physically being at the server.



  • FreedomBox version: (Latest Version as of 8/1/21) 20.4
  • Hardware: Macmini I7
  • How did you install FreedomBox?: USB loaded with Image from freedombox.org.

I notice your domain has capital letters. It is probably the same as this issue:

Yes. That solved the issue. Thank you. I knew there had to be a way to do it.

Would the issue need to be reopened?

No, there is no point to re-open that issue. It is fixed on the master branch, and in experimental. However, the fix did not make it into bullseye, due to freeze.

If we think it could be fixed in a later update to bullseye, then we could open a Debian bug for the affected version in bullseye.
