My domain is: http://www.kidneypatientguide.org.uk/
I ran this command: sudo mv certbot-auto /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto
It produced this output: mv: cannot move
certbot-auto' to /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto’: Permission denied
My web server is (include version): apache
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): debian squeeze
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): -bash: certbot: command not found
I am trying to install certbot by following the suggested steps for apache with debian squeeze:
- SSH into the server running your HTTP website as a user with sudo privileges
that was done
- wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
that did not work. (unable to establish SSL connection) But i found a workaround (or so i think) by downloading the certbot-auto file to my home directory and then moving it into the server by use of scp. It now lies there in the home directory.
- sudo mv certbot-auto /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto
I do not seem to have permission to do this. (error message see above)
Any suggestions why I am not allowed to move the file? i experimentally changed the permissions for certbot-auto and still cannot move the file so i assume the issue is with the target directory.
Thanks for your suggestions. I am quite new to this and have only done it before (for a ubuntu 16 server and that worked smoothly).
