Certbot won't renew with One Page Zen Tutorial, Please Help


#1

Hi, I used this tutorial on several sites, and the cron job doesn’t seem to work: https://www.onepagezen.com/free-ssl-certificate-wordpress-google-cloud-click-to-deploy/

Can someone help with what should be correctly entered into the cron job to get it to work? Thank you very much for any guidance on this.

Hi @scottallanaz,

I think the guide should point to the full path to certbot-auto instead of ./certbot-auto, so after issuing this command sudo crontab -e put one line (there is no need to add 2 lines covering 2 different hours, you can do it in one line)

0 0,12 * * * /full/path/to/certbot-auto renew --quiet --no-self-upgrade

Of course, you must replace /full/path/to/ with the real path to certbot-auto.

Try it and if you have issues then come back with the error log.

Cheers,
sahsanu
