How can I auto-renew my Let's Encrypt certificate in Wordpress?

My problem:
I received this E-mail about Let's Encrypt certificate expiring, but I don't remember how I installed it in the first place, so I'm completely lost about what to do... I'm using Cloudway hosting if it's relevant.
Ideally I want it to auto-renew.

Answers to questions:
My domain is:

I ran this command: I don't think I ran a command. It's so long time I ago that I installed Let's Encrypt that I don't remember it.

It produced this output: I don't know.

My web server is (include version): Cloudway hosting and Wordpress site

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:Cloudway Hosting. Don't know if it's relevant. It's a Wordpress site.

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

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): It's a Wordpress site.

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): I don't think I'm using this.

Actually, your cert already expired on Mar7 (link here)

Your cert is a wildcard which means it has to use the DNS Challenge. Usually these are harder to setup so I'd think you would know if you did that.

That said, I think Cloudways set this up for you and you should contact them.

I see in your server response headers an indication that a CDN may be involved. And, they describe on their website that they provide free Let's Encrypt certs for their clients. Looks like something has gone wrong with the Cloudways setup.


Thanks, I could solve it by using Cloudways!
