Hi @Web1developer,

I assume you have certbot installed as you’ve already managed to issue some certificates, can you try the following now

 certbot --apache -d example.com -d www.example.com

For this example, the base domain will be example.com and you’ll need to change it to the one you wish

If you have multiple virtual hosts, you should run certbot once for each to generate a new certificate for each. You can distribute multiple domains and subdomains across your virtual hosts in any way.
