Hello DOies,

Following the link below to set up auto renew certificate.

At step 4 when I execute the command

Can someone direct me from where the command should be executed. I am executing from home directory.

Thank you, Normalize

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/whatsdarling.anound.com.conf produced an unexpected error: ‘server’. Skipping. All renewal attempts failed.

Hello,

First you have to install certbot :

Step 1 in https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-14-04

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