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-auto certonly --manual --preferred-challenges dns-01 -d *.douganconsulting.com
It produced this output:
It worked as expected.
My web server is (include version):
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
As noted above, I have been using the --manual option on this server (acting as a proxy, as I have several Web sites and subdomains hosted on my office LAN). While this works, it is not something I can automate. I've read the various posting and articles I can find but I'm not getting what I am looking for - which is a way to renew the certs automatically via a cron job. Can anyone point me to a way to amend what I have in place? I think, from what I understand from this site, that using the wildcard is not a good idea in terms of automation. Am I reading that correctly?
