Certificate Renewal Question

My domain is: https://conmitto.io

My web server is (include version): WordPress/Bitnami

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Azure

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 (WordPress)

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): Not sure (command not found when typed into terminal when logged in)

Hello, I received an email with an expiration notice for my domain. I followed these instructions and used the Auto-configuration script. I believed when I was setting it up there was a prompt to set up a cronjob to auto-renew the certificate. I’m not sure how to tell if that is set up. Upon trying to manually update the certificate I’m seeing that the command lego isn’t recognized.

My apologies if this is a basic question, just want to make sure everything updates correctly when our first certificate expires on April 20th. Let’s Encrypt has been very helpful!

Hi @akash925

your website uses that certificate ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=conmitto.io ):

CN=conmitto.io
	19.01.2019
	19.04.2019
expires in 18 days	conmitto.io, 
www.conmitto.io - 2 entries

So the automatic renew didn’t work.

Your last certificates:

There is no newer certificate.

Then do it again.

There is an information how to install lego.

Hi @JuergenAuer

Thanks for your response. I reviewed the link you shared.

I looked through Let’s Encrypt support and found this: https://docs.bitnami.com/bch/apps/wordpress-pro/administration/configure-crontab-letsencrypt/

I reviewed my cronjobs (by entering crontab -e) and see this:
0 0 1 * * sudo /opt/bitnami/letsencrypt/lego --path="/opt/bitnami/letsencrypt" --email="akash.agarwal@conmitto.io" --domains=conmitto.io --domains=www.conmitto.io renew &&
sudo /opt/bitnami/nginx/sbin/nginx -s reload

Which seems to line up with what the support doc shows.

I also tried just running the Auto-configuration script and it says that because the certificate is valid that I’d need to renew it, or generate a new one manually. I’m happy to do a new one manually, but just wanted to check first if this cronjob may work.

Thank you.
