Hi to all.
I tried to renew the certificate on my web server (MacOs 10.8.x)
I generated a new certificate, but when I try to import the privkey.pem (MacOS Server needs this!)
I get an error which says the privacy.pem has no content. This happens too when I try to import
it on my local iMac running the latest OS.
What can I do?
The recent certificate expires in 10 days
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
sounds like you don't have enough rights.
Do you use sudo?
And on MacOS it’s simply drag’n’drop.
Welcome to the community forum!
Can you show us screenshots? OSX 10.8 is significantly out of date - the last update, 10.8.5, came out in 2013. Barring everything else, you should at least update to that patch level. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202785
Can you show us file information too?
ls -al *.pem
Yes I know OSX 10.8 is old. But it’s a matter of money to buy a new Mac server at the moment.
But you helped me a lot!!!
Applying “ls -al *.pem” I saw that the private key - file had 0 bytes.
So I transferred a new one to the server, now it works.
(I have to use the certbot on my iMac here (10.14. ))
So thanks a lot, never had the idea to check it.
Best of luck out there @Seminar466!
