My domain is: joyal.in

I ran this command: certbot renew

It produced this output: not up for renewal

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.18

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Ramnode

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

Hi @JoyalV

Can you explain a bit more

After which update are certificates not showing?

I can see you have issued a certificate 12 days ago. https://crt.sh/?q=+joyal.in

can you also paste the output of the command

certbot certificates


If you go to the domain it doesn’t show you the issued certs

This is what I see when I try to reinstall https://ibb.co/exMTYF

Anyone know a solution?

hi @JoyalV

Did you read the error message?

The answer is pretty well spelt out - apache doesn’t start as something else is using port 80

You should be able to use the netstat command to figure out what process it is and fix it.
