#1

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is: www.tutoray.com

I ran this command: sudo letsencrypt renew

It produced this output:
Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.tutoray.com.conf

The following certs are not due for renewal yet:
/etc/letsencrypt/live/www.tutoray.com/fullchain.pem (skipped)
No renewals were attempted.

My operating system is (include version): ubuntu 16

My web server is (include version): nginx

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: digital ocean

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

Last February 3rd you renewed your certificate.

How did you originally get your certificate? With certonly? Did you reload nginx afterwards?


#3

i used this article to create the certificate:

reloaded nginx many times since.
tnx.


#4

So in your nginx configuration you’ve got ssl_certificate pointed to /etc/letsencrypt/live/www.tutoray.com/fullchain.pem?

Could you post the output of /etc/letsencrypt/live/?


#5

Yes, exactly to this point.
and the content is
folder: www.tutoray.com
and in that folder: cert,pem, chain.pem, fullchain.pem, privkey.pem

update:
i was able to solve this by adding --force renew

so it is still interesting to know what happened and how to avoid this in future, but for now we’re good.
Osiris, thanks!

Glad you’ve got things working, but it’s actually quite strange, because you had a valid certificate before you ran your command now… Just look at the link I posted earlier: valid certificate. Question begs: how did that certificate get issued and why didn’t your nginx use that certificate?


#7

not sure what you mean. pls try to rephrase.
do you want to see the content of /etc/letsencrypt/live/ ?
there is a folder: www.tutoray.com
and in that folder there are several files: cert,pem, chain.pem, fullchain.pem, privkey.pem.

if you need more info, pls let me know.
