Expiration emails


#1

My domain is: mq4build.com

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

Hi All,

I recieve two email messages from expiry bot expiry@letsencrypt.org.
It states that the certificate for my server will exire on 17 Jan 19 09:38 .

Same time, when I check the server certificate from my browser I see it valid to 28.03.2019.

For certificate management and auto renewal I use unregistered version of Certify the web software, which also claims that my certificate expire on 28.03.2019.

Should I worry about email expiry notifications?

Thank all in advance for any clarity about that :slight_smile:
Best

We consider a certificate to be renewed if there is a newer certificate with the exact same set of names, regardless of which account created it. If you’ve issued a new certificate that adds or removes a name relative to your old certificate, you will get expiration email about your old certificate. If you check the certificate currently running on your website, and it shows the correct date, no further action is needed.

If you do a search for certificates for that domain:

https://crt.sh/?q=%mq4build.com

(They’re listed twice.)

There’s an old one for only mq4build.com that does expire 2019-01-17.

The newer certificate you’re using now includes both mq4build.com and www.mq4build.com.
