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: jyotishstudio.com
I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --webroot -w /Users/administrator/Documents/demowebsite/ -d demo.macminivault.com -d www.demo.macminivault.com. ## Not this exact wording, this is from a tutorial
It produced this output: I got my certificates, problem is MAMP doesn’t recognize the private key
My web server is (include version): apache 2.4
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): MacOS X 15.5
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: myself on Mac mini using MAMP to run Apache
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): MAMP 5 x latest version just got it
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): dont know
I was able to create certificates for my domains using this command, everything went fine, the first site in MAMP that I applied them to went fine, the site started to work immediately, perfectly, but when I applied certificates in the same way, within MAMP, to a 2nd and 3rd site (host) it showed a red arrow next to the Private key basically indicating “not OK”… in some way… I’m not sure what exactly that means… I’m reaching out here because LetsEncrypt is half the equation, though I trust it, MAMP is in question, I was hoping someone here has heard of this and knows what to do. Red arrows next to private keys in MAMP latest Mac OS on latest MAMP just did the install of home-brew and Certbot… all new…
By the way StevenZhu I think it is your posted tutorial on how to do Lets Encrypt with MAMP really helped me… I mean it wasn’t your tutorial but you posted the link for me appreciated.
