I have a GoDaddy virtual private server that comes with cPanel / WHM installed. I turned off the proxy redirects so I could use letsencrypt-auto’s web root plugin, so I don’t have to shut down my server to renew the SSL certs.
I believe I have all the domain names setup correctly now. I’m using sub-domain redirects, so when I go to something like whm.mydomain.com, it redirects me to https://www.mydomain.com:2087. I’d like to try generating new certs for just mydomain.com, www.mydomain.com, hostname.mydomain.com and use the web root plugin with SSL. How would I go about doing this?
Should I revoke my current SSL certs (I have a bunch, like whm.mydomain.com, cpanel.mydomain.com, webmail.mydomain.com, etc) and then generate test certs, to make sure it works correctly without me needing to shutdown my actual server? Or should I just try generating new test certs and if it works, just generate the new certs and not worry about the old ones? I don’t want to get in trouble for requesting too many new certs. I think this will be the third time I’ve gotten real certs without any renewing.
