Certbot apache plugin on macos

All. I have certbot installed and it is working properly for certonly commands on MACOS.
I also have PIP installed with Python both Py26 and Py39. "Pip install certbot-apache" isnt working, and certbot-apache doesnt appear to be in brew. Can you all tell me how to add the plugin on MACOS?

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. crt.sh | 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: capitoltechnology.us

I ran this command: certbot -d zeus.capitoltechnology.us --apache (says plugin is not available/installed).

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on 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):

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):

If you install Certbot from Homebrew, it will come with the Apache plugin by default:

brew install certbot

If it says the plugin is not installed, then you probably have multiple Certbot installations. Remove the other ones (such as the one from pip) and use the one from Homebrew.


Yes I think somehow my brew crashed but reinstalled and it worked. For the record
however the MAC PORTS INSTALL syntax is "sudo port install certbot certbot-apache certbot-nginx" to get the base and both plugins....

Mac Ports is an opensource package manager for MAC which has a specific version for each OS load. There are several hundreds "ports already built".... but as like Brew these use the onboard compiler to dynamically build services which can be very dangerous.

We would like to request that Certbot creates a package file for installation of both plugins and the base.

You can close this one out.
