Hi @RyanSinger, as the error says, you seem not to have the apache plugin for the client installed; could you describe how you installed the client, what version you have, and whether you’ve changed anything since you originally got that certificate?


#3

I’ve upgraded Ubuntu with the new release. Maybe that reset my apache installation. What should I do?


#4

@RyanSinger, how did you install the client? Did you use the Ubuntu package?


#5

That was the problem. I was attempting to renew with the ubuntu packages, when I had downloaded it originally in my home directory. I just renewed successfully with the letsencrypt-auto script. Problem over. Thanks for your help!
