Certificate Expiry email invalid cert expiry date

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

My domain is:www.mbfw5.co.uk

I ran this command:I received email from expiry@letsencrypt.org stating my cert expires 21st April 2017. Running thro SSL Labs gives expiry date 27 June which I think is correct.

It produced this output: Why email with incorrect date

My operating system is (include version): Debian 7

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.2.22

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:n/a

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


There really is a certificate that expires 21 April:


There are also several other certificates, two of which expire 27 June, as you expected.

Let’s Encrypt bases the expiration emails on the exact combination of names covered by the certificate. While all of the certificates above cover www.mbfw5.co.uk, they also cover an assortment of other names. None of the newer certificates cover the precise set of names the 21 April one does, so the warning system, well, sent you a warning.

If you’re happy with your current certificates, and don’t need to renew that one, you can ignore the email. (And the two or three additional emails it will send you later this month.)

thanks for the quick response, I am a little new to this, must have been brain fade.
thanks again
