Fix: Unable to change owner and uid of webroot directory (Certbot Let's Encrypt)

Post by thaterrormessage »

Upon attempting to renew your domain SSL certificates, you receive an error message that prevents renewal:

Unable To Change Owner And Uid Of Webroot Diretory Certbot
Unable To Change Owner And Uid Of Webroot Diretory Certbot (4.95 KiB) Viewed 9837 times
Unable to change owner and uid of webroot directory

1. Open the CONF file for the failing SSL renewal domains. For MAC, this is located in /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/SITE.conf

2. Scroll to

Code: Select all

[[webroot_map]]
and ensure your path directories are correct:

Code: Select all

site.com = /Users/sites/Sites/site.COM
www.site.com = /Users/sites/Sites/site.COM
