the error is it because I am using a free lets encrypt certificate?

I’ve been fighting for several days and I have not managed to get out of here

Thank you very much for your time and excuse my English

Hello, how do you install the Let’s Encrypt certificate? If you’re just starting out, it might be a lot simpler to just go with the ones generated by the quickstart, as discussed in the Getting Started guide.

In any case, are you sure NODE_EXTRA_CA_CERTS exists in the environment when you invoke the command and is pointing to the cert appropriately? Could you please double-check?

Two weeks before installing openBalena, I created a free certificate with certbot, now when installing openBalena, I follow all the steps and the addresses are well pointed to the server. I have checked the variables of and contain the certificate path and it is installed on the client


Solved, sorry for the inconvenience, I think it was because I had a ca.crt certificate from a previous version, I solved it by deleting everything and re-creating the certificate and saving it, thank you very much for your time
