Hi @kiityman1

you have created 5 identical certificates.

Please use one of these instead of creating a new certificate.


Is there anywhere I can download them?

I had to reset my server and lost the files :frowning:

If you have deleted the private keys, you can’t use only the public part.

Creating files -> make a backup -> if not and if you hit the limit, you have a problem.
