I cant renew my cert

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: pomorze.travel

I ran this command: certbot certificates

It produced this output: Renewal configuration file /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/pomorze.travel.conf produced an unexpected error: target /etc/letsencrypt/archive/pomorze.travel/cert2.pem of symlink /etc/letsencrypt/live/pomorze.travel/cert.pem does not exist. Skipping.

My web server is (include version): express node

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: ovh.com

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

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): 0.37.2

Someone modified the symbolic link mentioned or deleted/modified files or filenames in /etc/letsencrypt/archive/pomorze.travel/. Please check the latter directory for the latest certX.pem where X is the highest number and update the symbolic link /etc/letsencrypt/live/pomorze.travel/cert.pem to point to that latest certX.pem file.

@cassubian, you need to take a deep breath and stop freaking out because you don’t understand things. If you don’t understand things, you can study them.

I just don’t know servers, certbot script didn’t work and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know servers !!!

I’m afraid I will exceed the limit

I have carried out your commands and I have a mistake at all, I am farther than closer
