I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

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

I have contacted the webdesigner, he says he doesn't manage the SSL
I am a new IT person for the company, I am just trying to get the site SSL recertified and not sure where or how to do that.

Hello @maybankcert, welcome to the Let's Encrypt community. :slightly_smiling_face:

If you are using the HTTP-01 challenge of the Challenge Types - Let's Encrypt
Let's Debug is showing an ERROR for HTTP-01 that Port 80 is not Open.
Best Practice - Keep Port 80 Open

If you are using the DNS-01 challenge Let's Debug is showing an OK

But I do not know which you used since this was not filled out

I also suspect some dynamically changing environment on your side, like a "smart" firewall or possibly you are bring the system down and up.

But your server seems to be nginx.
