Missing cron job or systemd timer

Hi guys, this is my first time to install certbot. I followed the tutorial from digitalocean (this article) using apt, everything is fine, cron job or systemd timer is fine, but certbot with apt is deprecated. Then I remove certbot and followed certbot's official instructions using snap, ssl was successfully installed, but why the cron job or systemd timer is not there?

My domain is:

  • zhoiruddin.link
  • www.zhoiruddin.link
  • fp.zhoiruddin.link

I ran this command:

sudo systemctl status certbot.timer

It produced this output:

Unit certbot.timer could not be found.

My web server is (include version):
Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.15.0-45-generic x86_64)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Alibaba Cloud

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):
Yes, I can.

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):
certbot 1.16.0

Hi @zhoiruddin,

You should be able to find it using this name:


Ah, I see. Thank you. :grinning:
