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=pirelclothing.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is:pirelclothing.com
I ran this command: sudo certbot renew
It produced this output:
Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing...
Could not choose appropriate plugin: The manual plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: PluginError('An authentication script must be provided with --manual-auth-hook when using the manual plugin non-interactively.',)
Attempting to renew cert (pirelclothing.com) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/pirelclothing.com.conf produced an unexpected error: The manual plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: PluginError('An authentication script must be provided with --manual-auth-hook when using the manual plugin non-interactively.',). Skipping.
All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed:
My web server is (include version): Nginx
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.4
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
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 0.27.0
I tried redoing the process but get the same error.
I am not able to remove the existing cert to redo it fresh.
I am new to this and any help would be much appreciated.
