Q. Certbot error: apachectl: The "-v" option is not supported.
Attempting to renew cert (example.com) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/example.com.conf produced
an unexpected error: The apache plugin is not working; there may be
problems with your existing configuration.
The error was: PluginError("Unable to run ['apachectl', '-v'] -v"). Skipping.

1 renew failure(s), 0 parse failure(s)

You are asked some questions. I asked not to have it spinup
a temporary webserver since I already

My cert in the usual place was updated.
