Error revoking certificate - trying to install SSL on same canonical and non-canonical domains

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:
sudo /opt/bitnami/bncert-tool

Hi @docmedia, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

It looks like the "tool" has gone wild!
It seems to think that it needs to revoke a cert [can't see why!].
Then it can't; And complains that requester does not control all the names on that cert.
[when we lookup the cert... there is only that one single name on it! ("")]

If I had to guess [which I do]...
I'd have to say that too many cooks in the kitchen never leads to a great meal.
Someone probably has made some manual changes to a system that doesn't like that.
[and those changes might not have been done perfectly - and now it complains in weird ways]
