Emergency Update: 0.3.2-3



We have identified an issue with the Let’s Encrypt for cPanel plugin which has resulted in its inadvertent partial uninstallation from the system during upgrades. This is due to an error while handling rpm upgrades where the uninstall hook is invoked after installing the new version.


The impact of this issue is the plugin will not be displayed in end users’ cPanel accounts, and in some cases the daemon may stop, preventing automatic renewals. All user data and certificates are unaffected.

This issue will be triggered by any yum upgrade, including those run when cPanel/WHM self-updates.

Affected Versions

All versions prior to 0.3.2-3 are affected by this issue.

Upgrading to 0.3.2-3 from a previous version will not fix the issue. A full uninstall is required, as documented below.


To fix this issue, you will need to fully uninstall and re-install the plugin at the latest version.

This process is safe - no user data will be lost, including certificates and keys.

yum -y remove letsencrypt-cpanel && \
yum clean all && \
yum -y install letsencrypt-cpanel

This will prevent the issue from recurring in the future.
