Need help with certbot on httpd24

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: monitoring.neurones-it.asia

I ran this command: sudo certbot --apache

It produced this output:

initially showed this :
AH00558: httpd: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using fe80::ba:39ff:fe89:2d72. Set the ‘ServerName’ directive globally to suppress this message
Syntax OK

changed the httpd.conf file and now it only shows this :

Thank _az for trying to help…
