I want to make sure that certbot is always on top of renewing my Let’s Encrypt SSL certifcates. However, I don’t want my server to hog up someone else’s server’s bandwidth. So, I want my server’s crontab to check the SSL certificates for renewal every 1-5 minutes.
But, I want to make sure that doing this won’t send an extrernal request to someone else’ s server (like let’s encrypt certificate authority, or whatever) every 1-5 minutes. Will it? I don’t mind if it sends a request if it’s to renew the cert because it’s time.
Here’s the command that I am going to have ran every 1-5 minutes:
"./certbot-auto renew --quiet --no-self-upgrade --apache"
