How can I delete AWS certificate?

My domain is:

I ran this command: I deleted existing certificate in aws certificate manager, but when I create a new one, it shows error. And when I input my domain in CAA checker It displays my certificate remains in letsencrypt. How can I delete my certificate strictly? I can't use certbot for my certificate. My application is down because https not works.

CAA checker : DNS CAA record tester

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I can't

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): aws

Hi @nab5m

that's wrong. Please read required basics how CAA entries are defined.


is no Letsencrypt certificate.

But with that CAA entry, you can't create a new Amazon certificate, that may be your error message.

What's your exact error message?

If you want to create an Amazon certificate, you have to remove or to change your CAA entry.


Thank you for reply.

This is my case.
"Request failed. The status of this certificate is "Failed". One or more domain names have failed validation due to a Certificate Authority Authentication (CAA) error."

The validation status is "Success", even though the certificate request failed.

I didn't make CAA entry my self (directly), I created a certificate in AWS. How can I remove CAA entry? I think I should request a support and AWS should delete related CAA entry. Is it true?

It's your name server entry. There you have to remove that entry.

Who else? It's your domain, so check your dns provider.
