I can't renew my certificate with certbot renew command

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. crt.sh | 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: annatel.work

I ran this command: certbot renew

It produced this output: Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/annatel.work.conf

Failed to renew certificate annatel.work with error: The manual plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: PluginError('An authentication script must be provided with --manual-auth-hook when using the manual plugin non-interactively.')

All renewals failed. The following certificates could not be renewed:
/etc/letsencrypt/live/annatel.work/fullchain.pem (failure)

1 renew failure(s), 0 parse failure(s)

My web server is (include version): nginx 1.24.0

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debain 12

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): Certbot 2.1.0

Hi @Ghosty5406, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

Please show this file:

Note: Wildcard certs require DNS authentication.
If your last renewal used a manual method for such, you must repeat that same manual process OR replace it with an automated process [certbot can't do the manual process for you (without specific instructions)].


The error is pretty self-explanatory, right?

Please see User Guide — Certbot 2.9.0 documentation for more information if required.
