Ho to update ACME client


Hi there,
I got an email that informs me Let’s Encrypt client is using ACME TLS-SNI-01 domain validation. So, my ACME client has to be updated.
I please need some help with updating.
Thank you in advance.

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: https://servircloud.ddns.net

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu 16.04) + nginx/1.10.3 (Ubuntu 16.04)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04

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


Hi @jekemino

use your normal client, add

--preferred-challenges http

and test, if that works. If not, share the error.

PS: Checked your domain via https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=servircloud.ddns.net that looks good:

Your port 80 is open and answers with a correct http status 404.


I’m not so expert. So, would you mind telling me what I exactly have to do?


When you installed your certificate, you probably ran a command similar to ./certbot-auto --apache -d yourdomain

You would need to run ./certbot-auto --preferred-challenges http im guessing


You have a correct certificate (valide):

	officeservircloud.ddns.net - 1 entry

But it has the wrong name.

How did you create this certificate?

Perhaps you have changed your domain name. So do the same with the new domain name.


I’m running both owncloud and onlyoffice. That’s why I have two domains


Then you need one certificate with two domain names.


Then you need one certificate with two domain names.

Even if one is running under apache and the other under nginx?

  • create two different certificates with different domain names


That’s what I did. I should have two domains with two different certificates.


i received one of these emails as well. suggestion: please include a link on the email itself to the upgrade instructions. my two cents worth.
