How to update Let's Encrypt certification

Let's Encrypt Ubuntu 16.04

In Ubuntu server 16.04 with LAMP, I had installed Let's encrypt certification follow this guide!

However, now the command certbot renew --dry-run messed up the server and I had to reboot it in order to get back to normal..

So my question is how can I update my certificate?

Thanks a lot!

  • When you do your renewal dry run, do your apache config files become modified or does it just turn apache off for a moment?

  • I am not sure if any files were modified. I noticed only that the site was not accessible with an error message like "connection is refused" and then I restarted my entire server.
