Can't find letsencrypt install folder to renew


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:

I ran this command:./letsencrypt-auto --renew

It produced this output:./letsencrypt-auto: No such file or directory

My operating system is (include version):Ubuntu 16.04

My web server is (include version):

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):


Sorry, don’t think I did a great job of creating the topic :slight_smile:

I can’t find the install folder and my certificate is about to expire. I’ve tried using locate and find to search for letsencrypt-auto but can’t find it.

I also have one more server using letsencrypt. One of them I used certbot, but I’m not sure if it was this one or not. Hopefully someone can give me some advice.



I’ve sorted it. I’m an idiot and was using the wrong command to renew. I used

letsencrypt renew

And it works.
