LetsEncrypt API Outage

This outage is incredible today:

So just in case any of you are trying to use certbot today, it’s probably not just you if it fails.

We […] have fully stopped Boulder. All API endpoints are unavailable at this time.


I wonder if they are going to share the information of what went wrong in the form of article within the next week.

May have already seen this but brief overview of the issue here:

Oh you have got to be shitting me.

They’re using an auto_increment field and not pruning it, or using it for more than a transitory index? They’re literally using that field index alone for their certificate issue DB? Hell, Amazon is smart enough to start rolling shit into another DB/table when it gets too big.

It’ll get corrupt again, and all data will eventually have to be rebuilt like a damn shitcoin blockchain.
