Undo certbot certonly if cant get working


#1

I attempted to get certificates on ubuntu 14.04 with certbot. I ran certbot certonly following these instructions https://certbot.eff.org/#ubuntutrusty-nginx.

I selected standalone, entered my email, then the domains I wanted to get a certificate for (mgritts.com, www.mgritts.com, ndow-forms.mgritts.com). However the test failed and I was immediately exited from the interface. I figured I would get back to it later, as I had other things to do. However I cannot access my site on ndow-froms.mgritts.com anymore.

./certbot-auto rollback fails after this call:

Requesting root privileges to run certbot...
saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Failed to find apache2ctl in PATH:
...

However the file /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log doesn’t exist.

I would like to undo everything that certbot did so that my site will work over http again.

Sorry, this was an nginx config issue. I didn’t change the config, but for some reason I was unable to restart the nginx after attempting.
