Does the Let's Encrypt Client has too run 24/7


Dear community,

does the client has to be up and running all the time or can i uninstall it after i got the certificate?

Regards, Thomas


The client only needs to be run once every three months. First to generate the certificates, then to renew them.

Since you will need it in a fairly short time, I would advise against uninstalling it. If the official client is not to your taste, there are many alternatives.
