Setting up Cerbot client

I’m attempting to complete the setting up of cerbot I can not modify DNS records from CLI but I have access to modify records from my client area I just wanted to know what dns cname I need to create based on the command line I’ve provided your help would be greatly appreciated

My domain

I ran this command: CNAME

It produced this output: not found CNAME

My web server is (include version): ubuntu 20.04

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:hostwind

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): 16.0

There's so much wrong here that I really don't know where to start, but this isn't a command. It's not something you'd run. It's a version of a DNS record, but you don't give any indication of why you'd want that DNS record, why you're trying to use acme-dns, or why (if you are using acme-dns) you aren't hosting it yourself.

What instructions are you following? Because either they're very poor instructions, or you're misunderstanding them pretty badly.


That’s what I. Ended up doing just wasn’t sure thanks for your reply

Probably a silly question but will the cerbot client automatically upset caddy ssl certificate? Or do I have to do more could you point me to some documentation?

Thanks for your input I was. Just following a guide my vps host said to use

If you're using Caddy as your webserver, it will obtain and renew the certs for you automatically--there wouldn't seem to be any reason to use certbot.


Very TRUE; and as also confirmed by:
