I don’t use gethttpsforfree.com I’m afriad - have you tried contacting the author of the script - https://github.com/diafygi/gethttpsforfree ?

renewing the cert should be exactly the same method as generating it in the first place from what I can see.

…or, since you now apparently have access to your server, install one of the dozens of Let’s Encrypt clients on the server and generate your certificate locally. It will be much less work than using gethttpsforfree.com. The official client is certbot; I find letsencrypt.sh better suited to my needs, but there are lots of clients for just about every possible need.
