I'm NOT a ring dev and I make no warranties, but see if this logic can
work for you...

1) "Move" your current ring stuff to a safe place (be as safe as you
want. if you only want to back up dring.yml, so be it, but I would
make sure everything is backed up).
2) Start ring and create a new temporary account.
3) Also copy this to a safe place so you can copy it all back if
things don't work right so you don't have to create yet another
4) Diff the dring.yml from the new creation along side your back up to
see the structure, or what is different.
5) Change whatever you need to with the new config and anything else
that may be related (such as the certificates, assuming it relates to
the ringAccountReceipt and/or ringAccountReceiptSignature values)

Good luck
