VPS / Debian 8 / Apache 2 :
My hosting provider ; OVH, Dns Zones > My VPS :

Hi everyone, I try this command :

certbot --expand -d existing.com,example.com,newdomain.com

and my console returns this message

Attempting to parse the version 0.14.0 renewal configuration file    │  
     │ found at /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/nabil.photo.conf with version      │  
     │ 0.8.1 of Certbot. This might not work.                               │

and one of my domains have 3 certs in

/etc/letsencrypt/archive

How can I clean up this ?

Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Seems to me you’re running version 0.8.1 of certbot now… Which is like, ancient? How did that happen? Did you perhaps use certbot-auto previously in stead of certbot, the version which comes with the Debian package manager? Hmm, jessie-backports should install version 0.10.2 of certbot… Sow how is it possible you’re running such an old version?


#3

Maybe you have certbot-auto or letsencrypt-auto installed also?

What do your cron files or systemd .timer files use? (There are possibly two entries because Debian usually installs one.)

EDIT: I didn’t read Osiris’ crossed out section. :see_no_evil::speak_no_evil: I still think it could be valid! Debian did have certbot 0.8.{0,1} for awhile…

Thanks guys for your precious help, but i’m afraid to not be enough experimented yet. Maybe I had an old version from LetsEncrypt. Here, what I have in my Debian :slight_smile:

Description-en: automatically configure HTTPS using Let's Encrypt
 The objective of Certbot, Let's Encrypt, and the ACME (Automated
 Certificate Management Environment) protocol is to make it possible
 to set up an HTTPS server and have it automatically obtain a
 browser-trusted certificate, without any human intervention. This is
 accomplished by running a certificate management agent on the web
 server.
 .
 This agent is used to:
 .
   - Automatically prove to the Let's Encrypt CA that you control the website
   - Obtain a browser-trusted certificate and set it up on your web server
   - Keep track of when your certificate is going to expire, and renew it
   - Help you revoke the certificate if that ever becomes necessary.
 .
 This package contains the main application, including the standalone
 and the manual authenticators.
