Got the standard message that I needed to renew my certificate. But under my certificate I had 2 domains, only one of which I still have ownership over. It looked like I couldn’t quickly renew for just one of those 2 domains, so I deleted the certificate. I thought I’d be able to easily create a new cert using the same command as when I first created the initial one following these instructions, but have been getting errors.
My domain is: childcarecheck.info
I ran this command:
sudo certbot --nginx
It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Error while running nginx -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -t.

The nginx plugin is not working; there may be problems with your existing configuration.
