How to change email used during Ghost Blog configuration for Let's Encrypt, due to wrong email being used?

Ghost Let's Encrypt Ubuntu 16.04

Hello,

Thank you for taking your time to help.

I installed the Ghost blogging platform on my Ubuntu 16.04 droplet and everything went smoothly until I used the wrong email for the Let's Encrypt configuration. (I know I'm an idiot)...

So, I've been doing some digging and I found the email listed in the file 'accounts.conf' in the directory '/etc/letsencrypt'. Would changing this email mean future renewal notices go to this email? As so far I have no emails from Lets Encrypt about the site.

The site does have a working certificate however it shows HTTPS when connecting to it.

Finally, I have also tried the following command with no success:

sudo certbot register --update-registration -m newemail@example.com

I get the following returned from this command:

"Could not find an existing account to update."

Any help would be great.

Thank you.
