Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is:
I ran this command:
/usr/local/bin/certbot renew --pre-hook “apachectl graceful-stop” --post-hook “apachectl start”
It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Cert not yet due for renewal
The following certs are not due for renewal yet:
/usr/local/etc/letsencrypt/live/rural.net.au/fullchain.pem expires on 2019-03-05 (skipped)
No renewals were attempted.
No hooks were run.
My web server is (include version):
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
Additional: the reason for posting is that I have just received an email from letsencrypt saying:
“Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 20 days (on 25 Jan 19 04:54 +0000). Please make sure to renew your certificate before then, or visitors to your website will encounter errors.”
So my question is why am I getting the notice, when certbot is saying the domain isn’t due to renew?
