To successfully install and generate a Let’s Encrypt SSL cert. for a main domain or main hostname of the server, Please see following steps:

1. Go to “Webmin” at left side menu

2. Click and expand “Webmin” menu and click on “Webmin Configuration”

3. My Webmin configuration shows webmin version as “Webmin 1.851” here. There should be a box options saying “SSL Encryption”, click on this.

4. Click on “Let’s Encrypt” tab to use Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate as we are going to do.

5. Make sure your Hostname is correct. Make sure Website root directory is “/var/www/html” as defaulted in your apache configuration. Make sure monthly renewal is 3 monthly because all Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate expires within 3 months.

6. Click on “Request Certificate” to request for SSL from Let’s Encrypt.

And That’s All.
