I’d like to test a new version of Linux for a webserver as some people have troubles using it.
So I set up a new server and would like to test if it generally works. I’d like to move the “old” certificate to the new server and then switch the router to the testserver if things work. If not, I’d like to be able to switch back quickly. Therefore I’d need to use the old certificate in the new server.
I managed to move the certificate files (as described in https://ivanderevianko.com/2019/03/migrate-letsencrypt-certificates-certbot-to-new-server ).
However, the necessary modifications in apache which normally are done by calling “sudo certbot --apache” are not done on my machine, so SSL is not activated. Is there a trick to get letsencrypt to do that without generating a new certificate? (as this would make the certificate on the “original” server invalid, right?)
Thanks in advance!
My domain is: ralfiii.hopto.org
My web server is (include version):
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):certbot 0.31.0
