Hi @dhineshk6

please answer the following questions:


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.

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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):

My domain is:

I ran this command:certbot renew --debug

The most important question here is:

What is your domain:

Looking at the output from your command it looks like you try to renew a certificate for the domain .com
That is not an existing domain name, but a TLD

In order to help you we need to know the domain name(s) for which you want to renew the certificate.
