How did you renew the certificate in June, September and November?

our IT Director renewed however he is unavailable at the moment and the client needs me to renew ASAP. I have no idea what to do so really need your help


I suspect that your IT Director was doing manual renewal (since the issued time is inconsistent). In this case, you might also need to perform a manual renewal by hand.
First of all, do you have access to the login credentials of the hosting panel? (Hint: it’s the panel located here) If you don’t have access to that panel, then there’s nothing you can do to either get the certificate or install the certificate.

Thank you

thanks for your help. If i can get access to the cPanel, can you please give me instructions on how to renew manually?

Since the client site is using cPanel, i googled a tutorial for you.

Thank you

Thank you so much Steven - greatly appreciated.
