Expand certificate

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: shesheds.co.nz

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Nginx 1.14 front end Nginx 1.17 back end

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04 front end Ubuntu 20.04 back end

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):certbot 0.31.0


So I have a certificate for my domain which is hosted on my internet facing server. Now I want to host a sub-domain on my back end server. So I am wanting to expand my certificate to include the sub-domain but have the certificate installed on the back end server so I don’t need to set up a cron job to copy it over. Is this possible? Thank you for your help.

Is that necessary? I.e., is the connection/network between your front end and back end server insecure?

No its no necessary, I was just being lazy :slight_smile:

So does the below look right?

sudo certbot --nginx --agree-tos --redirect --staple-ocsp -d shesheds.co.nz -d www.shesheds.co.nz -d nextcloud.shesheds.co.nz -d www.nextcloud.shesheds.co.nz -d admin.shesheds.co.nz -d www.admin.shesheds.co.nz --email info@shesheds.co.nz
