Struggling to renew certificate

My certificate expired yesterday. Now I get a warning when opening the website. I did a renewal via ./letsencrypt-auto certonly --force-renew -w /home/website -d . I use a Jetty server.

According to the letsencrypt logfiles the renewal was successful. The last modified edit of files privateky.pem, fullchain.pem, chain.pem and cert.pem in /etc/letsencrypt/live// was today.

But as you can see by visiting the website the certificate still shows that it was expired yesterday.

I ran this command:
./letsencrypt-auto certonly --force-renew -w /home/website -d

It produced this output:
Output has 386 lines with no error and on the end it is:

Hi @plaintext

please read your older topic:

There is a


used. So additional steps are required your Jetty is able to use the certificate. Do these steps again.

For automated renewal, you could make a shell script that performs all of these steps and then specify it to Certbot with the --deploy-hook option.
