UntrustedRoot: A certificate chain processed, but terminated in a root certificate which is not trusted by the trust provider

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:rav75.icu

I ran this command:certbot --apache --noninteractive --agree-tos --register-unsafely-without-email --expand -d rav75.icu

It produced this output:
Account registered.

    with the "certonly" option. To non-interactively renew all of
    your certificates, run "certbot renew"

Did you restart apache after issueing?

Thanks for the swift reply... i did : systemctl restart httpd

Hi @olek

looks like Certbot doesn't understand your system, so the certificate installation didn't work.

What says

apachectl -S
httpd -S

This could use an update:

I thought it was
sudo systemctl restart apache2
also, the lack of sudo in the command makes me think you are running this as root, which is not a good idea.

Running as root is pretty common when trying to acquire a certificate. Saves a lot of sudo'ing and permissional headaches.
