//========================================//

Background:
I have had the anetizer.com domain for about twenty years and have successfully had it running on about five different VPS.

I also had well over a dozen FreeNom.com free domains mostly used for sandbox sites but unfortunately FreeNom has recently started to block some of the domains without any warnings. The blocked domains can only be reinstated by paying a premium - a couple of USD above the price of their .com domains. In order to alleviate having to pay hundreds of USD for the sandbox domains I decided to create additional subdomains on anetizer.com (I have had bill.anetizer.com for quite sometime).

I managed to successfully create about six additional standalone subdomains. More subdomains created crosslinks. I read on this forum the subdomains could all be grouped under the anetizer.com domain...

During the subdomain creation process I have lost anetizer.com, all subdomains and now locked out for about a week because of too many failed attempts.

Questions:

  1. If the attempt failed to register a domain what is the correct procedure to prevent being blocked for a week?
  2. I assumed that "Renew & Replace" would ignore previous setting and start afresh.
  3. Previously when domains were changed to a different server I left the old certificates, etc on the old server and just created new domains, This has worked until now...
  4. After the one week wait what is the correct procedure to reinstall anetizer.com
  5. How can I remove the crosslink domain?

Additional information: - apachectl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS

What shows?:
certbot certificates

A1. The attempt didn't fail - it worked 5 times [that's the limit]
A2. That was a bad assumption; It replaced a perfectly good cert with a new one [five times]
A3. Is there a question in there?
A4. Don't wait a week - if you can use any of the recently issued certs.
A5. Please explain crosslink and what you are trying to accomplish.

Very strange indeed.

  1. It "worked" but did not render the correct domain instead rendered GekkoBooks.com
  2. The "perfect;y good cert" rendered the incorrect domain, GekkoBooks.com
  3. "This has worked until now..." but not working now. What can do to correct the crosslink?
  4. How can I use another "recently issued certs"?
  5. anetizer.com renders gekkobooks.com. Cross link refers to the following validation test:

True because all attempts failed to create a https:anetizer.com certificate and now I am locked out.

cat /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/anetizer.com.conf

Try adding this to that file:

  <Location /.well-known/acme-challenge/>
   DocumentRoot /some/unique/path
  </Location>

OR
These, if it complains about that one:

  <Location /.well-known/acme-challenge/>
   #nothing special
  </Location>

Modify/remove the .htaccess file in the folder: /var/www/anetizer.com/public_html
Which seems to be returning unrelated stuff for any/all challenge requests:

Many thanks for the prompt reply.

I made the suggested modifications:

  1. anetizer.conf modifications
  2. removed .htaccess file
  3. created a simple index.html file
  4. created a simple index.php file
  5. updated server with 24.9Mb of modifications
  6. rebooted server

Is everything working now (as expected)?

Still no change.

The Cert for “anetizer.com” cannot be renewed yet because it is still within the seven day locked out period. The http version is rendering as expected.

I added “domaincheck.tk” and the SSL Certificate is cross linking to “gekkobooks.com”. This domain is a utility which checks files with http, https, www prefixes without having to repeatedly clear the browser cache.

Should I delete/revoke the “gekkobooks.com” and try adding a new certificate?

You could generate a new cert with all the names on it.

NO.
That can only make matters worse.

I used certbot —Apache to recreate “domaincheck.tk” and the rendered domain is incorrect. Using this feature has previously worked for quite a few domains.

Would reinstalling the Ubuntu operating system and the domains solve all problems? (I have another DigitalOcean Server for a paying client. This is where the problematic domains were originally hosted. This Contabo server has double the capacity and uses a NVMe drive and claims to be about ten times faster than SSD Drives).

I’m not sure how the Certificates are stored externally and would like to delete/revoke the external Certificates rather than wait for existing Certificates to expire.

That does not shorten the wait time. If it did there would essentially be no rate limit as people could do that and re-issue indefinitely.

True :frowning:

i will reread the manual and try manual solutions.

Hopefully alternatives are found because certbot —apache is failing on the existing operating system.

I never got round to re-installing the operating system, instead I used a Snap backup which cleared the errors?

All the single subdomain certificates are working same as before trying to delete and combine the subdomains?

I will try later to install more subdomains and take special note of the logs and other sites showing certificate information.
