OCSP responder timed out

Recommended Posts

I'm seeing a lot of this in the syslog of one server that uses https for the web GUI:

Aug 22 12:39:40 Northolt nginx: 2018/08/22 12:39:40 [error] 7259#7259: OCSP responder timed out (110: Connection timed out) while requesting certificate status, responder: ocsp.int-x3.letsencrypt.org, peer:, certificate: "/etc/ssl/certs/unraid_bundle.pem"

If I understand it correctly, the problem is outside my network. It happens every fifteen minutes or so and it's been happening continuously since 19 August (three days ago). It looks as though it's trying to verify the authenticity of the certificate but getting no response from LetsEncrypt's server. The current certificate is valid until 4 November. A second server, also using the https://#hash.unraid.net method isn't showing the error but it's certificate is due to expire on 28 October. Is there anything I can do or should I just wait? I'm considering reverting to http.

It was actually complaining every eight minutes.


Toggling Use SSL to Off (click Apply) and back to Auto (click Apply) seems to have stopped the messages.

It's on the Settings -> Management Settings page. The wording has changed slightly in the intervening four years. The item is now Use SSH/TLS and the options I would toggle between are Off and Strict.
