Certificates revoke after deleting

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:

I ran this command:
certbot delete --cert-name tmp.enfins.com

It produced this output:
OK (i don’t remember exactly)

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
no matter

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
certbot 0.28.0

I have deleted old unnecessary certificates from server and still receive emails with expiration notice about them. How can I revoke old certificates?

There is no need to revoke old and deleted certificates.
The system merely notifies you so that you are aware that a cert exists and will expire soon.
If you have deleted it, there is nothing more to do - it will expire in the trash bin.


Hi @dvps

these are two different things. Revoking certificates doesn’t stop the mails.


Ignore the mails.


I don’t want to change expiration emails because I have another active certificates on the server. Yes, I will just ignore emails about old certificates.

Thank you!
