I am trying to run letsencrypt. It installed properly. Here's what it it output when trying to run it:

WebFaction API username, password, and/or servername are incorrect. Login failed. [bogeyman@web666 ~]$ letsencryptwebfaction --letsencryptaccountemail bogeyman@gmail.com --domains www.xxxxx.com,xxxxxxxx.com --public ~/webapps/myapp/ --username xxxxxxx --password xxxxxxx /home/billwagner3/.letsencryptwebfaction/gems/gems/letsencryptwebfaction-2.2.1/lib/letsencryptwebfaction/argsparser.rb:131:in parse!': missing argument: --password (OptionParser::MissingArgument) from /home/bogeyman/.letsencrypt_webfaction/gems/gems/letsencrypt_webfaction-2.2.1/lib/letsencrypt_webfaction/args_parser.rb:57:ininitialize' from /home/bogeyman/.letsencryptwebfaction/gems/gems/letsencryptwebfaction-2.2.1/lib/letsencryptwebfaction/application.rb:12:in new' from /home/bogeyman/.letsencrypt_webfaction/gems/gems/letsencrypt_webfaction-2.2.1/lib/letsencrypt_webfaction/application.rb:12:ininitialize' from /home/bogeyman/.letsencryptwebfaction/gems/gems/letsencryptwebfaction-2.2.1/exe/letsencryptwebfaction:5:in new' from /home/bogeyman/.letsencrypt_webfaction/gems/gems/letsencrypt_webfaction-2.2.1/exe/letsencrypt_webfaction:5:in' from /home/bogeyman/.letsencryptwebfaction/gems/bin/letsencrypt_webfaction:23:in load' from /home/bogeyman/.letsencrypt_webfaction/gems/bin/letsencrypt_webfaction:23:in'

Any ideas as to why it thinks that no password was entered?

Haha. Lord. Whatta dork I am. Thanks bmyer71! It's all good now. By the way, quotes not necessary for username. Only for password.

try enclosing the username and password each in single quotes.
