Renew is not working


My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo certbot renew --dry-run

It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/

Congratulations, all renewals succeeded. The following certs have been renewed:

Still I am getting SSL error on browser
Plase help me to resolve this



There are a few things worth noticing:

  1. You used certbot renew --dry-run, which would going to simulate the renewal, but not actually renew the certificate.
  1. You might need to reload your webserver after renewal, see the below quote.

Run sudo certbot renew and check if the new certificate is issued and showed up on browsers. If not, you’ll also need to manually reload your webserver.

Thank you
