Certificate renewed, old one is used

My domain is: grenier.mcxi.eu

I ran this command:

certbot certificates

It produced this output:

Certificate Name: grenier.mcxi.eu
Domains: grenier.mcxi.eu
Expiry Date: 2017-10-01 21:41:00+00:00 (VALID: 56 days)
Certificate Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/grenier.mcxi.eu/fullchain.pem
Private Key Path: /etc/letsencrypt/live/grenier.mcxi.eu/privkey.pem

My web server is (include version):

nginx version: nginx/1.10.3
built with OpenSSL 1.0.2k  26 Jan 2017
TLS SNI support enabled

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Raspbian GNU/Linux 8.0 (jessie)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: self-hosted

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

But if you connect to my server, you see the old certificate.
My current config in nginx is:

listen 443 ssl;
server_name grenier.mcxi.eu ;

ssl on;
ssl_certificate     /etc/letsencrypt/live/grenier.mcxi.eu/fullchain.pem;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/grenier.mcxi.eu/privkey.pem;

Let me know if you need more details

Hi @mat-m,

Your web server is using the last certificate that is vaild till October 1st:

I see no problem at all.


The most common cause of this kind of problem is that nginx isn’t being reloaded after renewal. If you use --nginx this happens automatically; otherwise use --deploy-hook (–renew-hook on older versions)

Ok, so I probably had a certifcate cache issue in my browsers.
But I may have missed a previous reloading.

Now it is fine.

I will investigate the hook option.

Thank you
