after i had a problem with the certificate of a domain, i deleted the certificate of the domain in the 3 folders (renew, live,archive) then ran the creation command again
My domain is:www.referencementschool.com
I ran this command:./certbot-auto --webroot -w /home/path/ -d www.referencementschool.com
It produced this output:
My web server is (include version):Apache 2.4
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Debian 8
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):yes
former certificate name was referencementschool.com, but new one is referencementschool.com-0001, why can’t i create one with forme name?
It isn’t a good idea to remove files and dirs manually, you have the command
./certbot-auto delete for these purposes.
Are you sure you removed all references to this domain?.
find /etc/letsencrypt/ -iname "*referencementschool*"
grep -ri 'referencementschool' /etc/letsencrypt/*
ls -l /etc/letsencrypt/live/*referencementschool*
Keep in mind that you can use the
--cert-name option to specify the name of your certificate.
Example using the command you posted and
referencementschool.com being the name of certificate:
./certbot-auto --webroot --cert-name referencementschool.com -w /home/path/ -d www.referencementschool.com
thank you for the commands, indeed the old name is still present, but i could not see the referencementschool.com-0001 anymore strange, everything is as normal now
