"[Domain] is not a issued domain, skip"

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: radical-4.com

I ran this command: acme.sh --renew -d radical-4.com

It produced this output: ‘radical-4.com’ is not a issued domain, skip

My web server is (include version): Apache

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: InMotionHosting.com

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

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): cPanel but not for LetsEncrypt renewals

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): acme.sh v2.8.6

Unable to renew a batch of certificates because one of the domains is no longer in existence. Running acme.sh --renew -d trillionpictures.com triggers all the associated domains to renew as well, including radical-4.com, which causes an error:

radical-4.com:Verify error:Invalid response from http://radical-4.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/5lLp6O1uSfMXxY9546gJLNRs4SR3jEWP6t7XC9kdpaM [198.54.117.197]:
Please check log file for more details: acme.sh.log
which shows radical-4.com is not a issued domain, skip.

I tried acme.sh --remove -d radical-4.com but get the same error.

So for the moment I’m stuck: Can’t renew because the domain doesn’t exist, and can’t remove it either. Is there another way to tell acme.sh to skip an non-existent domain?

--renew is supposed to be used with a certificate that already exists.

acme.sh is saying that you don’t have an existing certificates with that name.

Check the output of:

acme.sh --list

for the name of your existing certificates.

Thanks _az, I do see the domain listed in acme.sh --list. I’m guessing there’s a file somewhere on the system where that can be edited out?

Runs your acme.sh there?

If not, first step: Change your A-records.

Edit: whoops, I misread your post a little bit.

If you want to remove an existing domain from your certificate, you might be able to modify the Le_Alt line in ~/.acme.sh/trillionpictures.com/trillionpictures.com.conf and remove radical-4.com from it.

Then when you run the below, it should hopefully perform a renewal without including radical-4.com:

acme.sh --renew -d trillionpictures.com

Hah, yes, it’s an expired domain that’s not being renewed. The goal is to get rid of it from acme.sh
