My hosting provider, if applicable, is: UK2
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): cPanel 11
I don't know how to use certbot now that cert-bot auto is deprecated. Previously, I used to do the following:
sudo ./certbot-auto certonly --manual -d (my domains)
then when it gives me the acme-challenge, I log in to my cPanel on my provider's shared web hosting, File > File Manager, and create the required files there. One the certificates are created, I upload them to cPanel, Security > SSL/TLS.
But now certbot-auto is gone/deprecated, and I'm seeing recommendations to either use certbot (not certbot-auto) or acme.sh. But I've looked at both tools and based on the instructions I'm seeing, they seem to assume that I'm running the command line tool on the same computer which is hosting my website, which I'm not. If I run it on --standalone it wan't to run a webserver locally. If I run it on --webroot it wants to write files directly on the current machine.
Can someone explain how I can use either of those tools (certbot or acme.sh) when they are not being run on the same computer that is hosting the site, and I can't login or run shell commands on my shared host's web server. Or is there a way I can still use the old certbot-auto that worked before. My web host says they cannot provide any support with this.
My domain is: N/A
I ran this command: N/A
It produced this output: N/A
My web server is (include version): N/A
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): N/A
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): N/A
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): N/A
