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: www.criticalcareupdate.com

I ran this command: /home/bitnami/letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto certonly -w /home/bitnami/apps/wordpress/htdocs -d criticalcareupdate.com -d www.criticalcareupdate.com

It produced this output:

Please pardon my ignorance, I am not a technical person.
How do I create A record ? On amazon lightsail or on google domains ?

Read the output of the check. There are your name servers listet, there you have to change that.

Thank you very much.
I added one more A record in amazon lightsail DNS page.
Then I was able to install the certificates.
