My domain is: radioalgerie.dz

**I ran this command: **

It produced this output:

How would you like to authenticate with the ACME CA?


1: Apache Web Server plugin (apache)
2: Spin up a temporary webserver (standalone)
3: Place files in webroot directory (webroot)


Select the appropriate number [1-3] then [enter] (press ‘c’ to cancel): 3

Hi @ychaouche

if you want to create a wildcard certificate, you must use dns validation.

So use --manual. Certbot-auto doesn’t support an API solution.

Or switch to another client, may be acme.sh.

PS:

*.radioalgerie.dz is bad, because the main domain isn’t included.

Create a certificate with *.radioalgerie.dz and radioalgerie.dz.

Thanks @JuergenAuer,

I’ve redone the same command only with --manual this time and went with DNS validation. This is a renewal, but I can’t really think of any difference b/w renewal and new certificate. It all seems same to me (at least in manual mode)

I will think about adding another certificate for the parent domain.

Thanks !
