Sigh

My crystal ball has broken yesterday… Can you please elaborate? How can we help you if we have to guess? If you can’t recall the exact steps, you might want to search for the YT tutorial again on how to reproduce the steps.

So, you used the client “gethttpsforfree.com”.

As that’s a manual client, you’ll have no way to automate the renewal, as the issuing wasn’t automated as wel. You’ll have to do the whole process again as the YouTube video explained, with a few remarks:

The account key you can re-use. I assume you have everything from the first certificate issuing stored somewhere safe, so you can just grab the old account key.

You can either generate a new CSR in cPanel (and use a new private key) or re-use the old CSR and private key. That’s up to you.

Aside from the two remarks above, you’ll have to follow every step again as explained in the video.

So I have to do this process every 90 days.


#12

Yes.

On shared hosting there’s almost no way to automate renewal, unless you have a hosting provider which has automatic Let’s Encrypt support.

Thank you for your support. Can you tell me what process I have to do if I want to revert back to HTTP.


#14

Disable HTTPS in cPanel.


#15

How to do that in cpanel?


#16

What have you tried yourself, just having learned this new information? What Google search did you try? What websites did you try? Why didn’t it work?

This is a community of volunteers. We don’t get paid answering these kind of questions. Please have a little bit more initiative.

I will try and revert back to you. Thank you for support
