I have letsencrypt which has been working fine for a year but recently i dropped one of my registered domain names and got an error in the certificate renewal because the DNS lookup failed. I have fixed that using certbot -d option. However my public/private key seems to have disappeared from Bitvise SSH on my Windows machine.
I want to get BitVise SSH working again. I copied fullchain.pem (from etc/letsencrypt/live/bunnfamily.nz) to my windows computer but BitVise SSH does not recognise it.
If I use ‘import’ under BitVise client key manager and select “all files” and then click on fullchain.pem it says “Decoding client key has failed. Keypair importer: unrecognised or invalid import format. Make sure this key is not only public, but a full private key or keypair”.
I know I made this work once, what am I doing wrong?
