How to automate the certificate renewal?


My certificate was renewed today, and I would like to know how to configure it to be automatically renewed. Is ts a script programmed on task scheduler to run periodically, something like that? If yes, where I could find this script? If not, how/where can I configure this ?

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): IIS10

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): WS2019

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Cloud

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): no

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

In your previous thread today I saw perhaps "someone else" has renewed your certificate today. I think it's probably best to identify and ask that "someone else"?

Because it's searching for a needle in a (admittedly relatively small) haystack if you don't know how the certificate was issued and/or renewed in the first place. Which ACME client is being used et cetera, that sort of information.

OK, I will ask the person who renewed it. I know who is :wink: I only would like to know how to automate the process, too. Thanks anyway :slight_smile:

That's probably ACME client specific, so without knowing that, I think it's hard for us to tell you. Note that I don't have experience with Windows Server 2019, but I'm fairly certain this statement is valid for that environment too.

I see. Thanks anyway for the hint. I will ask the guy for specifics :slight_smile:

The high-level overview is that generally one uses a client program to get and install a certificate, and yes the client program usually sets up some sort of automated task to handle renewing the certificate every couple months. But without knowing more about what program you're using or how you're trying to use it, it's pretty hard to tell you what to do, beyond the general advice that yes you should ensure you're using a program that does it all automatically for you. :slight_smile:

Indeed , he used win-acme . I have found the task that runs it, on the task scheduler of the server :wink:
