I'm given to expect that I always make a mess of things; and both because of and in spite of this I get the feeling the mess I have been making is not realising that intended use is to run twice, first to issue then to install? Because I'm a bit compulsive about clean images, and I've done all sorts of dirty things to the installation I had, I'm going to restore my last image before trying again (I've got 4 duplicates left for the main domain's certificate issued via the panel integration so I figure it's worth it for 'cleanliness'). Hoping it is just a case of "it's easy when you know how" - thanks for your reply. I'll report back [hopefully without one of my waffle-posts]. Rob.
