SSL is valid, but browser doesn’t think so

My domain is: pipperweb.com

I ran this command: sudo certbot renew

It produced this output: /etc/letsencrypt/live/pipperweb.com/fullchain.pem expires on 2019-09-01 (skipped)

My web server is (include version): Apache (installed via brew)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): macOS 10.14.5

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: MacStadium

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot version 0.34.2 (via brew also)

The domain listed shows that it is valid until October of 2019, but when I visit the URL in any web browser it shows the cert expired 12 days ago

Hi @dennispipper

your certificate is incomplete.

You have two certificates created ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=pipperweb.com#ct-logs ):

Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-07-08 2019-10-06 pipperweb.com - 1 entries duplicate nr. 1
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-06-03 2019-09-01 pipperweb.com, www.pipperweb.com - 2 entries

But you use the wrong with only one domain name:

CN=pipperweb.com
	08.07.2019
	06.10.2019
expires in 90 days	pipperweb.com - 1 entry

Result: Your www has the wrong certificate, your non-www has the correct certificate.

Domainname Http-Status redirect Sec. G
http://pipperweb.com/
207.254.73.85 301 https://pipperweb.com/ 0.334 A
http://www.pipperweb.com/
207.254.73.85 301 https://www.pipperweb.com/ 0.337 A
https://www.pipperweb.com/
207.254.73.85 301 https://pipperweb.com/ 1.890 N
Certificate error: RemoteCertificateNameMismatch
https://pipperweb.com/
207.254.73.85 200 2.546 B

But if a user uses the http + www version, then the redirect doesn’t work, because the wrong certificate blocks.

PS: I don’t see an expired certificate, I see a wrong certificate.

What says

certbot certificates

apachectl -S

@JuergenAuer

You are right, also I didn’t mention that I have several domains on the server.

certbot certificates results:

There

is the certificate you need.

That’s good, one vHost with both domain names

That’s good - same reason.

So you have the certificate and a vHost with both domains.

So try

certbot -d pipperweb.com -d www.pipperweb.com

Certbot should find the certificate and should ask, if you want to install it.
