I recently transfered to a new server and it has been so FUN (sarcasm). I have been having issues with certbot. Last time I transfered servers I really didn't have issues with certbot. Now all the mysql dependent websites aren't working and certbot is failing to properly provide certificates for my websites (i get the browser "attackers may be trying to steal your information" warning). It seems that I zipped the /etc/letsencrypt folder and transfered it to the new server. It doesn't like that the key files are not symlinks. I tried deleting the certificates and creating new ones, but I ran into a bunch of issues. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
My domain is: www.techmasterdesign.com, groupfinder.cc, wavebuddha.com
I ran this command: sudo certbot renew --dry-run
It produced this output:
root@lenovo-server:/etc# sudo certbot renew --dry-run
