My certificate private key was exposed

my computer was hacked and someone could have a look upon all my private files including my website details … how can I change my website certificate keys

My domain is:

My web server is (include version): Nginx

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 16.4

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: not hosting provided … vps

I can log in to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

Hi @emadmosaad

simple answer: Create a new certificate.

The standard setup: A new key pair is created. Then your old key isn’t longer relevant.

If you have installed the new certificate, you may revoke your old certificate. That’s client specific.
