Certificate generated Successful but no secure connection

I've come to see you because for some unknown reason when I try to create a certificate I get this error message: TASK ERROR: ACME account config file 'default' does not exist.

I saw on this thread https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/acme-over-dnschallenge-failing.71902/ that apparently you have to check something on the GUI, the error is apparently very simple but I can't find it.

Could you help me?

Thank you in advance


PS : I finally figured out what they meant by the checkbox! The certificate was correctly generated by let's encrypt but for some unknown reason I still don't have access to the site in https. However, we can see that the certificate is indeed generated by let's encrypt.

What Domain are you using for the Certificate? Can you post the certificate details? You cannot create certificates for local IPs ( which would explain why the certificate is invalid for the IP you are using to access the Web Interface.
