3 Month before I have installed a Lets-Encrypt Certificate for our website.
Now i got a reminder, that the Certificate is due to expire, so now i am trying to extend it.
We are using apache to serve our homepage.
After some excessive trials i hit the Limit of 5 Trials, so one week later i am trying again
This is what i did this time:
service httpd stop
certbot --verbose --agree-tos --email email@example.com renew
but it fails after some seconds.
Pasting the relevant sections from /var/log/letsencrypr/letsencrypt.log are in the bottom of the topic.
What can be the issue ? Do i need to specify a password or could it be to wrong 80-> 443 redirection ?
Thank you for your Attention
Best regards …
