Is Cloudflare active for your domain on which you are trying to renew? :confused:


Did you install ACME v1 or v2 certificate?

Manual Plugin hints me that You installed a wildcard certificate on ACME v2 endpoint

Your renew command may be different. Please check the instructions from the tutorial You followed
