This looks to be an issue with the testing site I used and not with the cert itself.
This can all be ignored now. Thanks!

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:thninc.com
I ran this command: sudo sh ./certbot-auto certonly
It produced this output:- Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:
My web server is (include version): na
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: na
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no
Cert bot just issued me a new cert (thanks!) but the not valid before date is set in the future.
I went to : https://www.checktls.com/perl/live/TestReceiver.pl#TestService
to make sure the cert was good, it gave me the warning:
EXPIRED: Certificate 1 of 3 in chain:
Version: 3 (0x2)
Serial Number: 03:35:a1:24:76:06:35:b5:82:da:d5:5e:06:0b:f8:29:57:f4
Signature Algorithm: sha256WithRSAEncryption
commonName = Let’s Encrypt Authority X3
organizationName = Let’s Encrypt
countryName = US
Not Before: Feb 6 20:54:19 2018 GMT <---- THIS IS THE ISSUE
Not After : May 7 21:54:19 2018 GMT
commonName = thninc.com
Which is a couple hours in the future still.
I don’t need any support, I just wanted to report the issue.
Thanks for a great service!
