CERTBOT automatic renewal: Will "1 certificate per domain" be maintained?


#1

I like this automated solution, but need to maintain “one certificate per domain” even after the auto renewal occurs.

I have automated the CERTBOT client with crontab -e

#
# LetsEncrypt Daily Auto Renewal Check with certbot ACME client
#
21 8 * * * /usr/bin/letsencrypt renew

When the cronjob runs I get an email that the cronjob has run successfully.

The following
certs are not due for renewal yet:

/etc/letsencrypt/live/calendar.northpawfamilycloud.xyz/fullchain.pem
(skipped) No renewals were attempted.

I plan to install several other LetsEncrypt certificates individually, as opposed to many domains all on one certificate.

My question is when the certificate is eligible for autorenewal will the cronjob:

21 8 * * * /usr/bin/letsencrypt renew

renew each certificate eligible for renewal individually, or will multiple domains be conglomerated into one renewal certificate composed of all the domains that were eligible for renewal when the cronjob ran ?

I like this automated solution, but need to maintain “one certificate per domain” even after the auto renewal occurs.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / Apache

certbot renew doesn’t change things. It reissues certificates as they originally were (following the generated configuration files in /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/). It won’t combine things.

Thanks
