The Let's Encrypt API appears to have been responding normally for the past few hours. While we're still waiting on an official resolution from Let's Encrypt & Cloudflare, renewals and issuing SSL certificates should now be performing as usual. We'll continue to monitor the situation until an official resolution is reached.

The Let's Encrypt API is hosted with Cloudflare and there seems to be network connectivity issues between NZ and their origin servers. Let's Encrypt are currently working with Cloudflare to get this issue sorted. They have updated their status page regarding the incident here:

We're currently aware of an issue affecting connections to Let's Encrypt's API endpoint from our servers in the AKL01 and AKL02 regions. This means that customers in these regions might experience failures when trying to renew or issue SSL certificates using Let's Encrypt. The problem seems to be impacting all locations in New Zealand.

We're looking into possible alternative solutions while we wait for this to be fixed by our upstream providers.
