Renew or reinstall at a error

our certificate is at the end of his livetime.
It was created for 3 domains in 05/2018. One of them was deleted because we dont need it anymore.

Now i get an error, when i try to renew it.

Now my question: is it possible to completly create it with the command ‚certbot‘?
or do i have to revoke it or must i delete anything in the installation files in /etc/letsencrypt?
Greetings Doris

Error to renew cert : failed authentification error … error DNS NIXDomain looking up A for

certbot delete --cert-name

If that is not the certificate name, you can find it using:

certbot certificates

Do you still need a cert for the remaining names?

Good point. You either want to delete or renew your certificate just without that domain, depending on how it was originally done.

We can tell you which way is better if you can show us how your certificates are setup:

certbot certificates

here is the output from certbot. (I didnt make the setup)

Found the following certs:
Certificate Name:
Expiry Date: 2018-12-19 11:51:02+00:00 (VALID: 1 hour(s))
Certificate Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/
Private Key Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/

the cert for the other Domains is needed!

i called certbot – apache and did only create the new certificates for the remaining Domains.
… an now it works
thank your !
