Welcome to certbot-dns-bunny’s documentation!¶
dns_bunny plugin automates the process of
dns-01 challenge (
DNS01) by creating, and
subsequently removing, TXT records using the Bunny.net API.
The plugin is not installed by default.
If you followed the official instructions, you likely installed certbot as a snap. In that case, you can install the plugin by running:
snap install certbot-dns-bunny snap connect certbot:plugin certbot-dns-bunny
Alternatively, you can install certbot using pip and install the plugin by running:
pip install certbot-dns-bunny
Bunny credentials INI file. (Required)
The number of seconds to wait for DNS to propagate before asking the ACME server to verify the DNS record. (Default: 120)
Use of this plugin requires a configuration file containing Bunny API credentials, obtained from your Bunny panel.
Bunny API keys are not scoped and give access to all account features.
# Bunny API token used by Certbot dns_bunny_api_key = a65e8ebd-45ab-44d2-a542-40d4d009e3bf
The path to this file can be provided interactively or using the
--dns-bunny-credentials command-line argument. Certbot records the path
to this file for use during renewal, but does not store the file’s contents.
You should protect these API credentials as you would the password to your
Bunny account. Users who can read this file can use these credentials
to issue arbitrary API calls on your behalf. Users who can cause Certbot to
run using these credentials can complete a
dns-01 challenge to acquire
new certificates or revoke existing certificates for associated domains,
even if those domains aren’t being managed by this server.
Certbot will emit a warning if it detects that the credentials file can be
accessed by other users on your system. The warning reads “Unsafe permissions
on credentials configuration file”, followed by the path to the credentials
file. This warning will be emitted each time Certbot uses the credentials file,
including for renewal, and cannot be silenced except by addressing the issue
(e.g., by using a command like
chmod 600 to restrict access to the file).
