[URGENT] CentOS 7 AutoSSL issue

AutoSSL on CentOS 7 installations is currently failing due to a change upstream affecting SSL Certificate support. Our engineers have managed to update our installation utility to resolve the problem, however it requires manual action to resolve.

What is AutoSSL?

AutoSSL ensures that your MediaCP installation is covered by an SSL certificate to comply with modern browsers. SSL is a required component for accessing the MediaCP and your broadcasts.

Do I need to take any actions?

Yes. You should urgently run our AutoSSL configuration utility as root user which will automatically resolve the issue. You can do this by following these steps:

  1. Login to your server as the root user
  2. Update System Packages

    Before running the  AutoSSL configuration utility command, you should ensure your system has all the latest updates and yum is working. If yum update fails, the fix will not work.

    yum -y update;
  3. Run the AutoSSL configuration utility:
    /root/init autossl

Why is this happening?

CentOS 7 is approaching end-of-life on June 30th 2024 and will no longer be supported by CentOS, or the MediaCP. CentOS 7 is a very old operating system and has been falling behind in technology for several years. The closer we get to EOL the more issues we’re seeing. It is important to migrate to a newer operating system as soon as possible.
