How to auto renew

I heard that the Letsencrypt’s certificates are valid for 90 days. I am looking to get use them in the future on many sites and would like to auto renew them, as manually renewing them less than every 90 days for every domain would be completely unfeasible.

How do I do this?

Thanks

Hi @aquasar

that’s correct. 90 days. So automation is the key.

Start with some basics.

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:

It produced this output:

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):


If you use shared hosting, your options may be limited. If you use a control panel with an integrated solution or if your hoster supports Letsencrypt, it’s easy. Use that integrated solution.

If you have root access, select a client.
