Unable to renew my ssl certificates

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: qadiantimes.in

I ran this command: sudo /opt/bitnami/letsencrypt/lego --tls --email="qadiantimesofficial@gmail.com" --domains=“qadiantimes.in” --path="/opt/bitnami/letsencrypt" renew --days 90

It produced this output: zeeshandehlvi@qadiantimes-vm:/opt/bitnami/letsencrypt$ sudo /opt/bitnami/letsencrypt/lego --tls --email="qadiantimesofficial@gmail.com" --domains=“qadiantimes.in” --path="/opt/bitnami/letsencrypt" renew --days 90

My web server is (include version): Apache/2.4.43 (Unix)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): SMP Debian 4.9.210-1 (2020-01-20) x86_64

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Cloud

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 1.7.0

please help meeeee plzzzzzzzzzz

Did that command ever work?

Something stupid is going on.

i don’t know man … am i doing something wrong.
i tried to renew my ssl certificates for the first time nd i m getting these buch of errors…

i followed this article to renew my certificate
https://docs.bitnami.com/general/how-to/generate-install-lets-encrypt-ssl/

Yeah, that means there should not be certbot installed on that machine.

Why are you using tls-alpn-01 challenges: did you make this choice explicitly and consciously?

no i still have no idea what that ‘tls-alpn-01’ means …
anyways ssl is working now
i tried to delete and regenerate the cerificates multiple times … still it wasnt working and was still throwing the same handshake failure error but this time with some dns errors too.

I am using Cloudflare CDN
so what i did was… i removed the cloudflare nameservers from my domain and added the Google cloud nameservers
and i repeated the same steps again to generate certificate and this time it was a sucesss
after that i added back the cloudflare NS to main domain … and yeah it is working perfectly …

but i do want to ask something…

sudo /opt/bitnami/letsencrypt/lego --tls --email="EMAIL-ADDRESS" --domains="DOMAIN" --path="/opt/bitnami/letsencrypt" renew --days 90

in this certificate renewal script this “–days 90” can i change this to like 80 days ??? it won’t cause any errors ryt ???

This could defintely be a reason why tls-alpn-01 failed.

What does that option do? If it’s how many days to wait before renewing, go for 60.

(You should check if you can use http-01 or dns-01 instead of tls-alpn-01, as they should work without swapping nameservers)
