Problem creating a simple NAS certificate

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain

I ran this command: Trying to setup certificate

It produced this output: couldn’t save but think certificate created

My web server is (include version): no web server

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 don’t know

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): don’t know

Hi, I’m trying to setup a certificate on my Asustor 5202T for file service at home. I don’t need the certificate for webserver, FTP, etc., it’s for HTTPS. I get the page in a browser telling me the connection is not secure and Chrome often stops the connection and I can’t use the Control Center because of this.

I thought I followed the correct steps for registering a certificate with, Let’s Encrypt, but I got error messages and finally I got a message saying I had reached the limit for certificates for that domain? I didn’t think a certificate was being created because of the error messages and I couldn’t save? I used .myasustor along with my cloud ID as suggested. My router is Google Wifi.

On the 5202T, the HTTPS port is 8001. When I go into the Google Wifi router and set port forwarding 8001 to 80, I get a message that it is “not available”? The NAS shows up in the Google Wifi app on IPv4. Just in case my Internet provider is Comcast.

I don’t know what to do at this stage? Let’s Encrypt appears to have created a certificate(s) for my Asustor domain, but I’m not sure how that happened given the error messages. I don’t know where to look to make port 80 available for registering a certificate with Let’s Encrypt or what to do about the apparent certificates created? If a certificate was created, why wasn’t I allowed to save it to the NAS?
