I need to renew my SSL


#1

Hi I need to renew my SSL
My domain is: www.kahwatea.com

Thanks

Start here: https://certbot.eff.org/

Select Apache, select your version of Ubuntu, and follow the instructions.


#3

Thank you - how do i know what version of ubuntu I am using?


#4

You can determine this by logging into an SSH terminal, and running:

lsb_release -a

#5

Ok. I am not a web developer, is there a simpler way of updating the certificate without coding?


#6

Who configured your server for you?

Ultimately that person, yourself, or another person you delegate administrative responsibilities to, will need to perform this task.

Sometimes it is possible to use Let’s Encrypt without getting deep into technical tasks, but that depends on how the server was setup to begin with.


#7

Thanks I have spoken with the developers. How often does the SSL need renewal?


#8

The idea of Let’s Encrypt and Certbot is that it performs renewal automatically, and indefinitely. Humans should never have to intervene to do any renewal tasks.

It looks like when your developers set the server up, they did not configure it in a way where renewal would work automatically.

To remedy this, they should install Certbot and ensure it is setup to perform automatic renewal and installation of your certificates.

I don’t completely agree.
https://crt.sh/?q=www.kahwatea.com
shows a renewal pattern but recently lost its’ way…

Please show:
sudo crontab -l
systemctl list-timers --all
