I would like certbot to simply download certificates (if it doesn't already have them). It seems whatever I do, that certbot requests a new certificate. Is there a way of just downloading and then triggering a hook?
I've registered an acme account with my provider and told certbot about it.
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
well, we have over 100 different certs on different machines running different software. I had high hopes for certbot automating it, but to be honest it's failed on every one I've tried for various reasons, so I'm resigned to doing the work by hand.
The certs are set to auto-renew, and I was hoping to at least have certbot dl the certificate and run a generic post-process to convert it to different formats, so that I could have a central repository of current certificates. Perhaps the only way to do that is a series of wgets, but then there's no knowledge as to if the certificate has been updated and therefore if anything needs to be done.
