Webmin version : 1.844 Virtualmin : 5.07

Thanks for your help

Same here, i can't update certificates for subdomains with www. The error is: .. request failed : DNS zone www.subdomain.domain.tld does not exist on this system. The subdomains exists in BIND zones (with and without www pointing to the ip adress of the server), and, of course, the subdomains are ok and running. Http server = apache. Virtualmin version: 5.07.gpl Webmin version: 1.844

Later edit: The problem still remains in Virtualmin version: 5.99.gpl

I was having the same problem trying to add a LetsEncrypt certificate for a main domain and its sub domain. Not sure what finally fixed it but I did remove an https:// redirect that was in the .htaccess of the subdirectory. I was then able to add domain.com and www.domain.com
I was also able to add a certificate for the subdomain sub.domain.com (in its own certificate area) but that was not working since the subdomain was using the main domains certificate.
I went back to the main directory and added sub.domain.com to my existing certificate and it worked fine.
As I said before I'm not sure what fixed this. All I really did was remove the https:// redirect from the .htaccess file and made sure that my redirects were set up properly in my appache httpd.conf file.
Maybe it was some external issue but it appears to be working now.

if you force redirect to https you prevent letsencrypt to work. Try using this line to add to htaccess at the begining, it nullify all redirect for the letsencrypt directory

RewriteRule ^.well-known/ - [L,NC]
