#1

I received mail that my certificate will expire in 9 days but I successfully renew it:

Hello,
Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in
9 days (on 11 Apr 17 09:18 +0000). Please make sure to renew
your certificate before then, or visitors to your website will encounter errors.

iqleg.dk

My domain is:https://iqleg.dk/

I ran command for renew like: /opt/certbot-auto certonly --webroot --webroot-path /var/www/home/iqleg/www/ --force-renewal --email XXXX@XXXXXX.com --text --agree-tos iqleg.dk www.iqleg.dk

My cert looks and works good:

Please help me…
Why I recive this mail?

There are two certificates issued for iqleg.dk:

Let’s Encrypt will only regard a certificate as “renewed” (and forgo the reminders) if the list of hostnames is the same. As your new cert also has the www domain certified, it is a different list of hostnames and hence Let’s Encrypt doesn’t recognise it as a “renewal” of the previous certificate. Therefore it keeps sending you reminders for the old one. If you’re happy with your new certificate and you really don’t need the old one for just iqleg.dk, you can ignore the e-mails. Just note it’s not a bug, it’s a feature :wink:
