Could not reverse map the HTTPS Virtual Host to the original Unable to install the certificate

My domain is:

I ran this command:
certbot --authenticator webroot --installer apache -w /var/www/html/ -d -d

It produced this output:

Could not reverse map the HTTPS VirtualHost to the original


  • Unable to install the certificate
  • Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:

My web server is (include version): Server version: Apache/2.4.25 (Debian)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 9

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: contabo

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 0.28.0

Not a problem, install manually:

You can get proper paths running certbot certificates

You have to build on your current config, not replace it.

OK. But where I get *.cert and *.key I only get fullchain.pem and privkey.pem?

*.cert is fullchain.pem

*.key is privkey.pem
