Loopia DNS authentication plugin for Certbot

Project description

This allows automatic completion of Certbot’s DNS01 challange for domains managed on Loopia DNS.


$ pip install certbot-loopia


To use the authenticator you need to provide some required options:

--certbot-loopia:credentials (required)
INI file with user and password for your Loopia API user. user normally has the format user@loopiaapi.

The credential file must have the folling format:

certbot_loopia:auth_user = user@loopiaapi
certbot_loopia:auth_password = passwordgoeshere

For safety reasons the file must not be world readable. You can solve this by running:

$ chmod 600 credentials.ini

Known issues

  • Due to caching on Loopia’s side it can take up to 15 minutes before changes propagates. Therefore the plugin will wait 15 minutes before contacting the ACME server.
