How to revoke certificate? I have lost private key


#1

I lost access to my VDS How I can revoke my certificate ? thanks


#2

Why do you think you need to? Unless you suspect the private key has been compromised, there’s no reason to revoke anything.


#3

I can not reach the private key. I need to make the new SSL connection


#4

Then create a new cert. If you’ve hit the rate limits, you’ll just have to wait–revoking a cert won’t affect the rate limits. Again, the only reason to revoke a cert is if the private key has been compromised.


#5

Agree with the others that revocation won’t help with rate limits, but I did write a web-based revocation for the “lost private key” scenario a little while ago - https://tools.letsdebug.net/cert-revoke
