We encounter a problem with a certificate.

We had created a certificate for domain "".

This certificate was installed on a Fortiweb.

Fortiweb terminates SSL via this certificate.

The certificate was expired and we troubleshoot and saw that Fortiweb had kept only the private key.

We are trying to renew the certificate but we seem as blocked.

Hi @alegram, and welcome to the LE Community forum :slight_smile:

How did you create that certificate?


Well unless you are using the DNS-01 challenge of the Challenge Types - Let's Encrypt you will not succeed. HTTP Port 80 is OPEN and is redirected to HTTPS Port 443 which is not OPEN (filtered in this case).
