Manual certificate renewal

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. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

Welcome to the community @roger

If you need to use your own CSR you should review the below topic for the signatures supported.

But, certbot will create a CSR for you. You then specify the domain name(s) on the command line instead of using --csr. Such as:

sudo certbot certonly --manual --preferred-challenges dns -d * -d

I added the second domain so that specific name is covered. The wildcard only covers names at the * level. You can omit the second -d if you don't use that name explicitly.
