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. crt.sh | 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: backend.acrozilla.com
I ran this command: certbot renew
It produced this output:
WARNING:certbot.renewal:Attempting to renew cert (backend.acrozilla.com) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/backend.acrozilla.com.conf produced an unexpected error: ("bad handshake: Error([('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')],)",). Skipping.
and then some more error messages
My web server is (include version):not a web server
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 14
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: hostus.us
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes
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): 0.31.0
I created a certificate at some point, and subsequently stopped using it.
(In fact, I forgot all about it.)
Apparently, it was being updated successfully until September, but not since then.
Since the 3-month expiration was approaching, I got an email saying "It's about to expire."
Now, I just want to get rid of it, because (mysteriously) it is trying to renew every 12
hours or so, and repeatedly failing.
There is nothing in crontab for root, and nothing relevant to certs in the sole user's crontab,
so why this is happening, I cannot understand.
It would be sufficient to just stop these unsuccessful renewals,
but what I'd really like is just remove everything from the server
relating to certs.
