Renewal process on digital ocean of expired certicate

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:
certbot renew
It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):
Ubuntu 18.04
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
Digital Ocean
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
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): 0.28.0

Hi @santosh370

there is a certificate, created 2019-04-30 ( ):

CRT-Id Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
1431786017 CN=Let's Encrypt Authority X3, O=Let's Encrypt, C=US 2019-04-30 05:39:31 2019-07-29 05:39:31,
2 entries

But you don't use it, instead there is an expired certificate:
2 days expired, - 2 entries

How did you install that older certificate?

What's the content of your renewal file located in


You have redirects http -> https, perhaps your https has another configuration (another DocumentRoot). That may be part of the problem.

Your certificate is ok (and new).

What’s the result of

apachectl -S

There should be a config file with something like

SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl.key/
SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl.crt/

There is the wrong certificate used.
