NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID after manual renewal


#1

After working through the following problem, I tested renewal by running sudo letsencrypt renew. It renewed last night before the cert expired, but now I get an error from chrome that the cert date is invalid, NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID.

So what happened, and how do I fix this now that this website is unreachable?

I responded on the other thread.

Have you restarted your webserver (nginx) so that it loads and uses the new certificate ?


#3

It’s working now after a restart.

I restarted it last night just before the renewal, but wasn’t aware I needed to restart afterwards. On this and my other websites I have a cron job renewal running with this same method and never needed to restart those.

Glad you got it working :slight_smile:

I suspect in your other cron job renewals that there is something somewhere reloading the web server if it works nicely.


#5

Yeah, I’ll check into that.

Thanks for your very quick response! Can I buy you a beer?? :relaxed:

:beers: You’re welcome :slight_smile: All part of the community here, so no need for extra beer :beer:

Or are using the apache plugin, which reloads the webserver itself. :slight_smile:

By the way, about the beer: please accept such beer offerings and pass them on to me! :grin:
