Hello DOies,

Following the link below to set up auto renew certificate.

At step 4 when I execute the command

Hi, I already have the certificate, but it is expired, when I type in the terminal “certbot renew” I get the same error. I’m inside the “certbot” folder … can anyone help me if: 1) am I on the right track? if not the correct path, and 2) how do I solve it?

Thank you.

I’m getting an error with sudo letsencrypt renew

Error: WARNING:letsencrypt.cli:Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/ produced an unexpected error: ‘server’. Skipping. All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ (failure) 1 renew failure(s), 0 parse failure(s)


First you have to install certbot :

Step 1 in

Then you can go back to Step 4 and use certbot-auto renew
