Certificate expiration notice


#1

Hi!

I’ve seen this comment from @jsha, saying that if we received an expiration notice email that is after March 17, 2016 6:32PM UTC, we should start a new thread.

I renewed my certificates 11 days ago, but I received an expiration notice 3 days ago (so well after March 17th).

Here is my renew output from this morning, saying that everything is right:

$ sudo ./letsencrypt-auto renew          
Checking for new version...
Requesting root privileges to run letsencrypt...
   /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/letsencrypt renew

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/domain1.tld.conf
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/domain2.tld.conf
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following certs are not due for renewal yet:
  /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain1.tld/fullchain.pem (skipped)
  /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain2.tld/fullchain.pem (skipped)
No renewals were attempted.

Should I care about the email?

Thanks!

It’s a bit more complicated - if you receive mail for a certificate that’s been issued after that date, then something went wrong. Otherwise, this is expected. Here are some more details:

Ok so if I understand right, I just need to wait until the (wrong) expiration date written in the mail and then everything should be alright.

So it will be 90 days after March 17th before this is resolved for all domains?

Yep, or sooner than that once we run the necessary backfill job, which should be soon now.
