Certificate not due to renewal yet

I use letsencrypt plugin on my OMV debian server.
I’ve noticed that auto renew was not effective , so I tried a manual renewal.

but it fails with the following output:
The following certs are not due for renewal yet:
/etc/letsencrypt/live/Babo_certif/fullchain.pem expires on 2020-07-27 (skipped)
No renewals were attempted

the expiration is in 6 days, so I assume it is eligible for renewal, so what’s wrong with my settings?
Tank you for your help!

My domain is: babomijo.duckdns.org

My web server is (include version): OMV

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 10

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): yes

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): don’t know


What’s the output from date?

Hi @moreje

your system is a “little bit wrong” - see https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=babomijo.duckdns.org - skipped, because these duckdns name servers are terrible slow.

Checked your ip address with your domain name in the host field - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=

Your webserver has a completely wrong date.


you’re right!! I don’t know why, but it’s definitivly the cause!
I’ll check why and it should be OK!
thank you!


Take a look at NTP.
