Wildcard renewing certificates automatically


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: webzate.com

I ran this command: Error creating new order

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):Apache

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 9.5

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): yes

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


I’m using wildcard SSL certificate for my website and few days back i have received an email saying Let’s Encrypt certificate expiration notice for domain.

Here is how i have installed SSL on my server Error creating new order

can you please tell me how can i auto renew my ssl before expiring ?



Are you still using Debian 9?

To renew a manually-issued certificate, you have to re-run the same command (or a similar command) as you used to create it.

Going by your old thread, I think you used:

./certbot-auto certonly --manual -d webzate.com -d '*.webzate.com'


Hi mnordhoff,
Thanks for your reply

Just running this command ./certbot-auto certonly --manual -d webzate.com -d ‘*.webzate.com’ will renew my ssl?

Thanks again



Just like before, you will have to do two validations.

You will probably also have to reload or restart your web server or whatever software uses the certificate.
