I am getting error when certbot-auto renew commend is ran by crontab. The job is set to run once week at 12:00am. Is there a network disruption at Let’sEncrypt at mid-night? There was no network issue where my servers are located. When I run the commend manually during the day, it renews fine from the command line.
Midnight is indeed a moment of peak load, because so many people choose to set up their crontab at 12:00am. Our integration guide recommends picking a random minute and hour to run your renew job.
OK. Will give it a try in three months.
I’d actually recommend that you change your crontab now, so you don’t have to think about it in three months.
Also, you should really be renewing at 60 days, not 90 days, so you have time to recover from any problems. If you’re using
certbot-auto -q renew, Certbot will take care of this for you automatically.
OK. Thank you.
