[Newbie] My website has expired certification

I’m not the owner of the website. The owner has passed away and I’m migrating to a new domain soon. Still, can I renew the certification without any access to the Letsencrypt account of the owner?

My domain is: yuriproject.net

I ran this command: (?) firefox yuriproject.net

It produced this output: (?) expired certification; add exception

My web server is (include version): (?) don’t know

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS release 6.8

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: (?) don’t know, maybe INIZ

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

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): If there is one, I have no access to it.


For records only, you are using Nginx.

I'm sorry to hear the loss.

But, yes. You can.

Please kindly logon to the server, run the following command and see if there's any output.. (and share to us)

`sudo certbot certificates`
`sudo certbot renew`

sudo certbor-auto certificates
sudo certbor-auto renew

If the owner was using command line to get Certificate, this will check the certificate and try to renew it.

Thank you

I downloaded and am running certbot-auto, but it seems to be stalling.

I couldn’t download certbot-auto without wget -4 either.

Is this command supposed to take over an hour or can I make downloads inside certbot-auto use ipv4?

# ./certbot-auto certificates
Creating virtual environment...
Installing Python packages...

If your IPv6 routes don’t work properly, could you remove them?

After removing IPv6 routes, both commands ran successfully and the certification is renewed.

Thank you for your help.
