Hello. :slightly_smiling_face: Please provide more information.

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. https://crt.sh/?q=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:

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

Hi @manojrammurthy,

--dry-run means something like “test” or “experiment” and it’s meant for use to see if your configuration would work for a renewal. If you want to renew the certificate, you should instead use certbot renew, without the --dry-run option.
