Accidentally setup SSL for instead of my forum URL


Hi folks, web admin newbie here with a Xenforo 2.1 forum.
And I’ve made laughingly rookie mistake.

We want to switch from HTTP to HTTPS. So I was using this guide:

I was so intent on following the directions and copy/paste of the exact commands, that I totally missed needing to change the URL in this command from to

**sudo -H ./letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone -d -d**

Now in the Litespeed control panel, I suddenly have two VM’s. One for and one for
And both are listeners. ugh.

What is the best way to undo this without screwing anything up?
Also, is there a good guide to free cert setup for Lightspeed?
We’re a very small non-profit type forum.


My domain is:

I ran this command:
sudo -H ./letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone -d -d

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):
LiteSpeed Web Server 5.3

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
CentOS 6

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
LiteSpeed Web Server 5.3


Hi @czeddie

the is invisible. You can’t create a valide DNS entry, so no user is able to visit your forum via

And you can’t create a certificate with this name.

So it’s not really a problem.

I don’t use Litespeed. But there should be an option to remove the VM.
