Adding new website to existing configuration

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My existing certs are:
SAN cert:
Regular cert:

Want to add:

Want to update to SAN cert

I want to run this command:
certbot-auto --cert-name -d -d -d -d -d

It produced this output:
Since I did not run it, I have no output, but I am not sure it will create the two SAN certs (this is production) and the single domain cert.

My web server is (include version): Server version: Apache/2.4.10 (Debian)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 8

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
certbot-auto --version
certbot 1.0.0

That command looks fine to run per documentation. You could also give it a test by using our staging environment.

certbot-auto --staging --cert-name -d -d -d -d -d

How does that command know to create a SAN cert for the two coral URL’s and a SAN cert for the two sedumi URL’s while creating a separate cert for autonomy? I have a feeling it will either create 5 certs or 1 cert.

Ah, my apologies. It would indeed create a single cert with all of those subdomains. You could run certbot twice instead to get two distinct certificates.

certbot-auto --staging -d -d -d -d

certbot-auto --staging -d

Hi Phil,

Thank you! I would need to run it 3 times -

  1. coral certbot-auto --staging -d -d (already have current cert for these domains)

  2. sedumi certbot-auto --staging -d -d (already have current cert for ie domain)

  3. autonomy certbot-auto --staging -d

Each time with the staging option and then just add the cert to the SSL configuration file for each domain. Currently all the certs are in the /etc/letsencrypt/live directory along with the SSL configuration files. So since I already have a valid cert for the coral and sedumi, I can just run the autonomy once with staging to get my new cert.

Appreciate your guidance.



Glad it’s sorted :slight_smile:
Happy holidays friend.
