I have an SSL certificate issued by https://letsencrypt.org/ . It will be expiring tomorrow and I am having trouble renewing it. I have spun up a fresh linux box, installed certbot (as per https://letsencrypt.org/getting-started/ ) . I have the following saved in a local directory:
cert.pem chain.pem fullchain.pem privkey.pem
Within the directory that contains the certificate I then run
/path/to/certbot/certbot-auto renew --dry-run --force-renew
certbot appears to not find the certificates as it then says
No renewals were attempted.
I have also run
/path/to/certbot/certbot-auto renew --force-renew
and get the same response.
Is there a way to renew certificates that are not stored in the expected /letsencrypt/archive/… folder as is the case for a fresh installation on a fresh box?
