SSL Certificate Apache 2



I need to clear out my files and purge Apache, PHP, MariaDB and the droplet to start again but I’m wondering what would be appropiate to do with the SSL, should I clear it up and try to re issue it again with the new configuration or leave it as it is and reissue it with the new configuration?

My concern would be if I will be getting problems doing it or what do you guys suggest?

My domain is:

My web server is (include version): Apache2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Digital Ocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes


It should be possible to only re-install the certificate without re-issuing it.

I assume you used the --apache plugin? Because otherwise, you’d have to manually install the certificate into your Apache configuration and this wouldn’t be a problem in the first place :stuck_out_tongue:

Just do like you did when you issued the certificate in the first place: certbot will detect a valid certificate and ask what you want to do: reissue or reinstall. Choose reinstall and the certificate should be installed in the Apache configuration again.
