Hi there,

As this is a renewal, what you could do is SSH to your Droplet, and change the contents of your existing SSL certificate files. Then you would just need to restart your webserver.

To find the locations of the SSL certificate files, you can check your webserver configuration. For example:

  • For Apache, check the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled directory and look for the 443 virtual host associated with your website.
  • For Nginx, check the /etc/nginx/sites-enabled directory and look for the 443 server block associated with your website.

If it is a new installation you can follow the steps here:

Feel free to share more details about your setup and I can advise you further.

Best,
