My domain is: placeholder.com
I ran this command: certbot renew --dry-run
It produced this output: all good dude!
My web server is (include version): nginx 1.12.1
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): debian 9
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: baremetal
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):yep
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
Ok So i didn’t save the exact error message cause i didnt think it was going to limit out on me. I figured it checked if the files it needed were there before trying to hit the certification servers. So I guess i am done for a week. but maybe i can gatehr info in the meantime.
when running the certbot it throws err2 file not found, and points at my www.placeholder.com-0001 directory/archive privkey…which doesnt exist
I created my cert with a tutorial and i tried to create it for the www.placeholder.com AND placeholder.com and they both worked to make the cert. in my /etc/letsencrypt/archive I only have the directory called asite.com-0001 so i figure the cert with two different domains (the one with www and one without) .
Do I need the www version? once you get on my site, even with www on the address it goes to the version without www, i was just doing it to cover all possibilities of people getting there.
Thanks for making and providing this service and thank you to anyone that took the time to read this. And thanks in advance to anyone that has any information to help me.
also , as it is i am looking at just reinstalling the whole server because of this. I cant have another week down AFTER this week if i cant get it. with --dry-run working i have no idea how to try to fix it in 5 trys a week. I understand the limit but ouch its killing me.
