Anyway I can generate Free certificate without root access?

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): RHEL 7

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

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

Yes. Many clients don’t require root access.

Certbot is possible but difficult to run without root.

The bash clients are a good option: they’re designed to be easy to install and run without root.

The browser-based clients don’t require installing anything at all.

Even if you get a certificate, is it possible to configure your hosting to use it? And will you have to manually do something every < 90 days to renew and perhaps reinstall the certificate?
