How to download the certificate file: fullchain.pem from remote to local?

Hi, May I know how to download the fullchain.pem file from remote server to local?

My file is: /etc/letsencrypt/live/

I tried to download with filezilla but user permission is denied. Tried to change the user permission also to no avail.


The file is usually only accessible by root (due to 0700 permisisons on /etc/letsencrypt/archive, which is the target of the symlink from live).

So you will either need to connect as root, or copy it to another directory and make it readable at a lower privilege level.

You can also look up the certificate on and download the PEM using the “Download Certificate” link.
