I’m not quite sure what was going on here. I generated I think 7 certs at one time probably 6+ months ago, moved to a new server during that time and successfully moved my certs over. once on the new server, 6 of the 7 certs renewed properly, it seems. today 1 of the certs expired - my cdn cert, so my site was totally broken for about an hour. I’m not sure why, nor is there any error in my logs to indicate why, at least to my knowledge. even when forcing a renew, 6 of my 7 certs renewed without any issues whatsoever. what would cause this?
after messing around for a few minutes, I just generated a new cert with the exact same command that I used when initially requesting the cert: sudo ./certbot-auto certonly --email firstname.lastname@example.org --text --renew-by-default --agree-tos --webroot -w mysite.com/public_html -d cdn.mysite.com
here’s a few questions I have: what happens to my old cert that was generated together with my 6 other certs? will there be any issues when my 6 other certs renew? with me now having 2 different certs, when my crontab runs to renew the certs, will it automatically try to renew both certs?
