Letsencrypt crashed my server

I used “certbot-auto run” and although it ran successfully, it left my
apache-server in a crash-on-startup state. It turned out the problem
was that httpd.conf was edited to include

Listen 443

but Listen 443 was already specified elsewhere in file included
by httpd.conf. Multiple Listens on the same port caused the crash.

I realize that parsing and editing httpd.conf is an ad-hoc process.

Hi @ddyer,

I’m sorry to hear that. Presumably there was something about your configuration that Certbot had trouble parsing; would you be willing to post the config file and the logs from /var/log/letsencrypt so that we can learn more about what might have gone wrong?
