FAILURE of renewal


By mistake, I unistalled the Let’s Encrypt certificate for one of my domains, and, as a result, I’m getting this alerts:

Subject: [Let's Encrypt SSL] FAILURE of renewal of

Automatic Let's Encrypt renewal for was attempted and 
This certificate expires on 2018-07-26 17:13:21 -0500 CDT.

You can configure/re-install/remove this certificate by logging into cPanel, 
and visiting the Lets Encrypt SSL page.


Is there a way to re-install the Let’s Encrypt certificate ? I checked that the AutoSSL feature were enabled on WHM, but I don’t see the option to manually force the renewal (this alerts are almost a week old).

Thanks in advance and sorry for the bad English.


You could go to cPanel (client) and SSL status -> run autossl to obtain a certificate again.

Thank you

P.S. it seems that your domain might not directly point to cPanel anymore? Or there’s an internal server error… Since cPanel usually route the request process in server level (and it shouldn’t have a 403…)


Thanks for your answer. I ran the autossl option from the cPanel but nothing happened (no error, no new certificarte). And I’m not sure of what you mean by saying that the domain does not point to the cPanel. We don’t have any problems with the server, we can acces the cPanel of the domain via Is there anything that I might have missed ?


Are and supposed to have different IPs?    (insecure)  14400  A  (insecure)  14400  CNAME       (insecure)  14400  A

Yes, they have different cPanel’s
