When certbot failed to renew the cert on my old debian server, I created a new CentOS8 and tried to move my certs over.
I use DDNS to keep my IP updated on the Internet. I run my own BIND server inside with zone files for marsstuff.com. I can now access my web site at https://www.marsstuff.com, and I copied files around until I see that the cert is no longer expiring tomorrow. I noticed that certbot added a new folder in /etc/letsencrypt/live named "www.marsstuff.com-0001" (in addition to marsstuff.com and www.marsstuff.com)
My domain is: www.marsstuff.com
I ran this command: sudo certbot renew
It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Failed to renew certificate marsstuff.com with error: cert is required but missing for this certificate.
