The Certificate acts as it is expired while it is NOT

My site acts as if the certificate is expired while it is not

My domain is:

My web server is (include version): bitnamin

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):Apache2

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Lightssail/Wordpress

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):

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


Hi @ahalimo

you have a new certificate -

Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-08-26 2019-11-24 *, - 2 entries
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-06-01 2019-08-30 *, - 2 entries
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-05-31 2019-08-29 *, - 2 entries

But you don’t use it, instead, you use the expired certificate: (8631)
3 days expired	*, - 2 entries

If you have a bitnami, there are some additional steps required, so that bitnami is able to use the certificate Certbot has created.

How did you install that certificate created 01.06.2019? Do that again? Don’t create a new certificate, this is something outside of Certbot.

Thanks JuerAuer. Your are great.
Problem is solved.
My mistake was that I did not complete STEP 7 of the "Tutorial: Using Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates with your WordPress instance in Amazon Lightsail

The missed step was necessary to create links to the Let’s Encrypt certificate files in the Apache server directory.

Thanks again and God bless you
