Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is: sswormwood.com
I ran this command: n/a
It produced this output: n/a
My web server is (include version): n/a
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Gentoo, current
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: n/a
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes
I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): 1.27.0
Question: I'm still new at this, and I've just received the first email with the subject, "Let's Encrypt certificate expiration notice for domain 'sswormwood.com'". I could be wrong -- this is my first time through this process -- but I thought that I had automated the process to renew the notice on this cert. So, two questions:
First, could that be right? How would I check? Some call(s) to the certbot process?
If I'm wrong, and my cert is actually not renewing automatically, where's the process to handle renewal? That hasn't been explained in the email I received. It would be nice if it were.
