    General certificate question

    I get the "Your connection is not private" page when going to the Proxmox page. This requires me to add a certificate. However, I have a VM that hosts a couple of websites that do not have certificates. If I add a certificate to Proxmox, will it effect the VM sites?

    How do I request more than one certificate from Let's Encrypt?

    When the request is made, how do I list a second (and third, and so on) domain in it? There's only a single field. Do I use commas? semicolons? spaces? (,/;/ ) I'm already using dns-01, it's kind of a must because of the reverse proxy, I only would like to know which is the right separator...

    TLS certificate ACME generation problems

    Hello, we are using PMG v 7.1-2 We started using the integrated ACME, but when the certificates are automatically generated, for some reason, they always contain outdated Let's Encrypt R3 certificate chain which expired in 2021. This means that TLS with our customers stops working every time...

First of all, I'd want to be sure of a thing: Can I use the same port on Relay Port (Mail Proxy > relaying) and External SMTP Port (Mail Proxy > Ports)? After that, why postfix says "warning: No certs for key at...

This shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Here's the thing, I can't upload the Root CA to proxmox to be able to register. When I go to...
