Manual certificate update

The LetsEncrypt certificate for our site is working fine but due to expiry in 18 days. It was originally installed using the manual procedure which I believe I need to do again (unless there is some easier option).

In any event, I don’t recall the steps for doing that and haven’t found them yet.

Suggestions please? TIA.

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.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.41

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ? shared hosting

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Optimus Internet

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Can SSH but no root

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): cPanel 78.0 (build 38)

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Hi @rbostrum

you use

and cPanel. So if your cPanel doesn’t support the automated solution: Yes, you have to do that manual again and again. Not good, but that’s the limit of shared hosting without integrated Letsencrypt support.

Ok. That’s as I expected. I’ve queried my ISP about their SSL options but haven’t heard back so I’ll just keep doing it manually until a better option is available.
