I’m facing the same problem as in other discussions, but where I could not see the solution working for me: moved my domains from one IP to a new one…all worked fine with my SSL certificates, until now I wanted to renew them and have the same symlink error message.
When I moved to new IP (on 23rd may 2018), I copied all letsencrypt files from previous server to new server.
It worked perfectly, until I tried to renew the certificates with Certbot yesterday.
Thx for your help in advance!
My domain is: skooly.co
I ran this command: certbot renew
It produced this output:
expected /etc/letsencrypt/live/mail.skooly.co/cert.pem to be a symlink
Renewal configuration file /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/mail.skooly.co.conf is broken. Skipping.
Additionally, the following renewal configuration files were invalid:
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Linux with Apache 9 on Debian
