My domains are: sabots-libres.eu, sabotslibres.eu, sabotslibres.fr
I ran this command:
sudo certbot certonly -–manual -–force-renewal -d *.sabots-libres.eu,sabots-libres.eu,*.sabotslibres.eu,sabotslibres.eu,*.sabotslibres.fr,sabotslibres.fr
It produced this output: standard creation of _acme-challenge entries for the three domains and three files for the _well-known/acme-challenge directory on the web server
My web server is (include version): (not applicable)
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): not applicable
I am running a standalone openSUSE Tumbleweed server to generate keys since I do not have shell access to the provider's web server.
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: n/a
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes, on my certificate machine.
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): yes, Direct Admin
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): 2.5.0
Previous generation of certificates have passed without incident. At the beginning of this year, I reinstalled the keyserver onto a Tumbleweed server after using Ubuntu for some while.
The generation of keys worked perfectly (two sites, four domains) in January.
Now I have attempted to regenerate for the second time for three of the four domains (which run on one single website).
Certbot generated the normal three-part fullchain.pem key but on opening the privkey.pem file, it was only 241 bytes whereas previously, it was 1704.
Similar to the problem mentioned in Issue SSL certificate successfully but found the content of privkey.pem is too short , the private key is a mere three lines long.
A second attempt to regenerate the keys resulted in exactly the same problem.
