Was trying to renew a certificate. Which I do ever 3 months for years now, but this time was different. Went through all the DNS verifications (#6) . But was unable to create new certificate do to missing private key which is lost. Don't think I had one as a file. I never enter a path for --pkfile when I created a new certificate and never remember seeing a .PEM file created.
How do I delete the old certificate which is up for renewal and create a brand new one with no private key. Should I cancel or revoke the old certificate ??
Domain: mail.xlogic.com (one of many)
I use ACMEv2 wacs.exe (version v188.8.131.528) as my client. The certificate is used on Exchange Server 2019. The .CSR file was created from Exchange.
Also saw error message 'Error finalizing order :: signature algorithm not supported' but not sure if this is related.
