    (Debian Stretch) ISPConfig 3.1.13 The perfect server, Apache
    Let's encrypt does not renew anymore. I guess, certbot is out of date:
    Code:
    [email protected]:~# which certbot
    /usr/bin/certbot
    [email protected]:~# certbot --version
    certbot 0.10.2
    
    What is the best approach?
    Do we upgrade ISPCONFIG3? Does that look after this issue?
    Thanks in advance,

    You need to update the certbot client, updating ispconfig will not help. How did you install the old one?

    What a journey!!!!
    I think I broke the server, apache does not want to restart.
    Deleted all the vhost symlink under
    Code:
    /etc/apache2/sites-enabled
    Apache restarted with no errors and everything is good.
    installed certbot as per:
    https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/debianstretch-apache
    Did not perform step 7 as per @till recommendation on another post.
    Voila, everything is working as normal and I have upgraded the ISPCONFIG3 as well.

    Good deal. You would not have needed to delete the certificate though, just update certbot and the them, but glad you got it working.

    Congratulation though the approach prescribed by @Jesse Norell is simpler.

    In my mind, if you can bravely come to a level of deleting all certs, certbot and apache2 enabled vhost, the better alternative to me is to use acme.sh in certbot place.

    Thanks @Jesse Norell and @ahrasis
    @ahrasis How do I switch from certbot to acme.sh?
    I wanted to do this but I was under pressure to get things moving.
