False alarm of certificates expiration

Hi all,

we always get those false alarm of certificates expiration, I checked crt.sh and found that the 07 Oct expired date was from the old records in crt.sh

Which other area should I look to prevent those false alarm? thanks a lot.

Hello,

Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 19 days (on 07 Oct 22 00:10 +0000). Please make sure to renew your certificate before then, or visitors to your web site will encounter errors.

We recommend renewing certificates automatically when they have a third of their total lifetime left. For Let's Encrypt's current 90-day certificates, that means renewing 30 days before expiration. See Integration Guide - Let's Encrypt for details.

For details about when we send these emails, please visit: Expiration Emails - Let's Encrypt In particular, note that this reminder email is still sent if you've obtained a slightly different certificate by adding or removing names. If you've replaced this certificate with a newer one that covers more or fewer names than the list above, you may be able to ignore this message.

For any questions or support, please visit: https://community.letsencrypt.org/ Unfortunately, we can't provide support by email.

If you are receiving this email in error, unsubscribe at:

Please note that this would also unsubscribe you from other Let's Encrypt service notices, including expiration reminders for any other certificates.

Welcome to the community @letsencryptja

This thread is a more detailed explanation and provides further tips, as you asked for.

If that isn't sufficient, we'll need to know some actual domain names to help assess. Thanks

Actually for the Domain Name xxx.com has https://crt.sh/?q=xxx.com
Also passing is
SSL Server Test: xxx.com (Powered by Qualys SSL Labs)

Valid from Thu, 11 Aug 2022 19:05:00 UTC
Valid until Wed, 09 Nov 2022 19:04:59 UTC (expires in 1 month and 18 days)

Issues making queries on your end?

One other thing @letsencryptja I do not find any certificate newer than
1526492450 2019-05-31 2019-05-31 2019-08-29 vintagetube.xxx.com vintagetube.xxx.com C=US, O=Let's Encrypt, CN=Let's Encrypt Authority X3

I think you are in error with that date; based off of https://crt.sh/?q=xxx.com

Yet SSL Server Test: xxx.com (Powered by Qualys SSL Labs) does have newer date. :woozy_face: :confused:

And Netcraft's reports
