Ssl certifies on windows server 2022 apache

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:localhost:8080 (

I ran this command: certbot certonly

It produced this output:dos prompt

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): windows server 2022

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:localhost

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

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):

You cannot get a cert from Let's Encrypt for "localhost" as it is not a domain name in the public internet. And, you won't be able to satisfy an HTTP Challenge on port 8080.

But, if you can explain more about what you are trying to do we can probably help. At least explain what you want the cert to do.


I have also domain but i have hosting on my server using static ip .. can i get ssl for this.

For a [global DNS] name = yes
For an IP = no [not from LE]
For a name like "localhost" = never [no CA will do that]
