Does creating cert for an existing domain with certbot certonly command revoke the existing cert?

Hi,

I have a bunch of domains in production for which I have to renew the certs.

I plan to automate the cert creation/renewal process for these set of domains.

In order to test it, I intend to create certs for the domains from scratch on a staging environment first.

Will creating certs for these domains from scratch revoke my certs in production?

Note: I am using certbot certonly command and not certbot renew command.

The reason I am doing this is because I don’t want my production certs to be affected while I test out the certs creation process on a staging environment?

Thanks and Regards,
Sana

Hi @sanakhanlibre

no, creating new certificates (stage or productive) doesn’t revoke existing certificates.

Never!
