Cant renew certificates after expiration date

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. https://crt.sh/?q=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: ricta.org.rw

I ran this command:certbot --apache -d ricta.org.rw

It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator apache, Installer apache
Starting new HTTPS connection (1): acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org
Obtaining a new certificate
Resetting dropped connection: acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org
Deploying Certificate to VirtualHost /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default-le-ssl.conf

Please choose whether or not to redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS, removing HTTP access.


1: No redirect - Make no further changes to the webserver configuration.
2: Redirect - Make all requests redirect to secure HTTPS access. Choose this for
new sites, or if you’re confident your site works on HTTPS. You can undo this
change by editing your web server’s configuration.


Select the appropriate number [1-2] then [enter] (press ‘c’ to cancel): 2
Enhancement redirect was already set.


Congratulations! You have successfully enabled https://ricta.org.rw

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:
    /etc/letsencrypt/live/ricta.org.rw/fullchain.pem
    Your key file has been saved at:
    /etc/letsencrypt/live/ricta.org.rw/privkey.pem
    Your cert will expire on 2019-08-15. To obtain a new or tweaked
    version of this certificate in the future, simply run certbot again
    with the “certonly” option. To non-interactively renew all of
    your certificates, run “certbot renew”

Hi @rwakagabo

you have created 7 certificates today ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=ricta.org.rw ):

So that part works.

But your site is invisible:

ConnectFailure - Unable to connect to the remote server No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 196.49.7.184:443

So I can’t see which certificate is used.

Thanks @JuergenAuer for the reply
now the website is up. you can check please.

yes we tried to install the certificates above because after the certificates is installed the redirections to https fails. and on this link of testing shows certificates expired https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=ricta.org.rw

Thanks,
regards

@JuergenAuerhow can i force apache to read the new certificate installed.

Thanks,
regards,

Janvier R.

Now http works, https is blocked:

Looks again like a firewall, now only port 443.

What says

certbot certificates

Does https work internally?

curl https:yourwebsite

I don’t know if there is https installed or if it is only a firewall.
