No, certbot renew won’t work if you issued the cert in manual mode. You’ll need a DNS host that has a supported API, and a hook script for certbot that knows how to update DNS records at that host. Alternatively, you’ll need a different ACME client that supports your DNS host (acme.sh supports over 50 DNS hosts, for example).
Any time you issue or renew the cert, Let’s Encrypt needs to validate control. If you’re using DNS validation, the records will be different each time.
Can you please let me know what command i need to execute to renew my certificate. Do i need to provide additional information or it will renew certificate automatically which is created by the command which is provided earlier.
When you install acme.sh, it automatically sets up a renewal task, so once you issue the cert with it, renewals should be automatic. So, you’ll need to follow the instructions at the links above (they look the same, but they are two separate links) to issue the cert, and probably update your configuration to use the cert/key files in the location where acme.sh saves them. After that, it should renew automatically from there.
Let me try with the script. is there anything i need to setup for renew , as i can check there a command for renew as well. But for renew test can i execute renew command after creating the certificate or it will renew only few days before expiration.
You can manually force a renewal as a test.
But that should not be necessary; If it got a cert it can and will renew it.
You should use a cert monitoring program to alert you that your cert is nearing expiration (if ever).
Registering an email address with LE will automatically provide that address “alerts”.
A very good third party tool for notifications is: https://keychest.net/
If your site is already TLS enabled, you simply need to update the config to use the newly created files.
I can’t tell from reading through this topic thread if you already have TLS working nor what web server you are using nor what your domain name is…
My Domain is myaddressline.com.
I create a certificate and add this in azure app gateway. After renew command it create a certificate but did not reflect on site. DO i need to manual upload again for renew certificate.
First, confirm that you have a cert: ./acme.sh --list
If none then back to square one.
Otherwise, then do either:
update an existing cert used in your web server config
[update which cert to use]
install the new cert into your web server config
[use cert - first time]
Where, and how, your “install” the cert depends on which web server used (Apache, IIS, LightSpeed, NGINX, Tomcat, etc.) and weather you have already enabled TLS for that domain.
If this is the first time, then you should review “how to” enable TLS for your specific web server.
If this is an update, then you can use the ./acme.sh--install parameter to update the current path in your config to use the newly created cert.
Hi already go with this. this is example of certbot. and not able to generate wildcard certificate using this. so i go for acme.sh , it is generating certificate and renew as well. but to install with api gateway looking for auto deploy this certificate.
