I want to delete the certificate. I issued one with ACM

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: dudedope.com

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): linux ubuntu 16.04 Wordpress EC2 instance

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: its a Bitnami machine

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): removed certbot

In what way do you want to delete it?

Destroying the private key is all you need to do. If you uninstalled Certbot, you can just remove the /etc/letsencrypt directory on your server, and that’ll be the end of it.

I have already issued the cert from ACM but when I go to https://dudedope.com it is using a self signed cert from example.com

Any insight on how to resolve this issue?

okay thanks! I looked for a bit but some of the posts the op (original poster) didn’t give much detail but this was a god send. I will try it immediately

Certificates issued by Amazon via ACM may only be used if you are using one of their managed load balancers, like ELB.

You can't use an Amazon certificate from ACM on your EC2 instance.

From https://aws.amazon.com/certificate-manager/faqs/ ,

Q: With which AWS services can I use ACM certificates?
You can use public and private ACM certificates with the following AWS services:
• Elastic Load Balancing – Refer to the Elastic Load Balancing documentation
• Amazon CloudFront – Refer to the CloudFront documentation
• Amazon API Gateway – Refer to the API Gateway documentation
• AWS Elastic Beanstalk – Refer to the AWS Elastic Beanstalk documentation
• AWS CloudFormation – Support is currently limited to public certificates that use email validation. Refer to the AWS CloudFormation documentation

Either way, I want to remove letsencrypt from the instance.
