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 hosting provider, if applicable, is:Me
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
