Certbot: error: unrecognized arguments: –nginx


#1

when i visit my domain,i get a 404 not found error,if i edit it as https://www.work-shine.com by hand,i get a NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID .

In chrome,use F12,you get :
Certificate - missing
This site is missing a valid, trusted certificate (net::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID).

My domain is:www.work-shine.com

I ran this command:
sudo certbot -nginx certonly

It produced this output:
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/ndg/httpsclient/subj_alt_name.py:22: UserWarning: Error importing pyasn1, subjectAltName check for SSL peer verification will be disabled. Import error is: No module named 'pyasn1’
warnings.warn(import_error_msg)

warnings.warn(import_error_msg)
usage:
certbot [SUBCOMMAND] [options] [-d DOMAIN] [-d DOMAIN] …

Certbot can obtain and install HTTPS/TLS/SSL certificates. By default,
it will attempt to use a webserver both for obtaining and installing the
certificate.
certbot: error: unrecognized arguments: –nginx

My web server is (include version):nginx/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Ubuntu 16.04 x64

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 xshell5

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

Hi,

If you are using certonly, I don’t think you’ll need--nginx (for running). (However I’m not sure)

Also the command should be--nginx (two “-” instead of one)

Thank you

Now it says “the certificate is only valid for work-shine.com”.

It’s worth noting that these are hosted on totally separate IP addresses:

work-shine.com has address 209.141.38.71
work-shine.com has address 107.161.23.204
work-shine.com has address 192.161.187.200
www.work-shine.com has address 45.76.234.229

You might want to figure out whether they’re meant to be hosted in the same place and in the same way, and which names should be included in your certificate.

Certbot chooses the names to request the certificate for based on existing nginx virtual hosts, if you use --nginx. You can request other names by giving a complete list of names with -d options. However, normally --nginx can only obtain certificates for names that are currently pointed at the server where you’re running Certbot. So, if www.work-shine.com and work-shine.com are pointed at separate servers, you wouldn’t be able to obtain certificates that cover both names by running certbot --nginx on a single server.
