What method did you use to create the certificates originally ? the “renew” option will try and repeat that.

As you have apache running, is there any reason to use the TLS challenge ? i’d be tempted to obtain new certificates using the HTTP challenge, and the “renew” should follow the same approach.


#6

Hello

I don’t remember how, but I remember that it wasn’t easy…
but it worked until now… I don’t understand why

I ran

certbot certonly --apache --preferred-challenges http-01 -d www.vertyges.fr -d vertyges.fr

I have this answear

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log Starting new HTTPS connection (1): acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing... Renewing an existing certificate Performing the following challenges: None of the preferred challenges are supported by the selected plugin
:frowning:

I think I need plugin/ .deb…


#7

You could try using the webroot plugin instead of the apache plugin. It supports http-01 and is included with certbot so no extra .deb needed.


#8

Hello

I ran

certbot certonly --webroot-path /var/www/externe --preferred-challenges http-01 -d www.vertyges.fr -d vertyges.fr

I had this

IMPORTANT NOTES:
 - Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at
   /etc/letsencrypt/live/www.vertyges.fr/fullchain.pem. Your cert will
   expire on 2017-04-20. To obtain a new or tweaked version of this
   certificate in the future, simply run certbot again. To
   non-interactively renew *all* of your certificates, run "certbot
   renew"

The certificate should be renewed well but Apache points to the former one
> www.vertyges.fr uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate expired on 16/01/2017 10:19. The current time is 20/01/2017 10:57. Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE

I have to check Apache config now

#9

Unlike the apache plugin you previously used, the webroot plugin does not automatically reload your apache after renewal. That’s needed to load the new certificate from disk. You would have to run apache2ctl graceful afterwards to do that (this can be part of your cronjob, for example via --renew-hook "apache2ctl graceful".


#10

Reloaded Apache config and ALL WORK WELL !!!
I updated cron job
Thanks very mutch to pfj, jmorahan and serverco!
