One of our webservers has to move from one department of my organization to another department, which makes a new installation necessary, and the new server will also have a different DNS record. The certificate on the old server was obtained with certbot and also the new server will have certbot. However, the new server runs on a new version of Apache (2.4 instead of 2.2) and also uses a different Linux (CentOS 8 instead of Debian). We plan to connect the new server to the Internet and change the DNS record next week. The current certiifcate is still valid for 10 days and I have full access to the /etc/letsencrypt directory.
I looked around on this forum and it seems there are two options. The first option is to move move the existing certificate to the new webserver as described e.g. here: Move to another server Is the information still accurate and up do date?
The second option is to install a fresh certificate from scratch. I'd somehow prefer the second option since the current certificate was installed by a colleague who left my orgnaization already and I also think that this is probably the cleaner solution since there are some differences in the setup (e.g. the virtual host settings). Is there anything I need to pay attention to when installing a new certificate on the new server?
