MY SSL expired unexpectedly


My site’s SSL was renewed by DO on 27th December 2018. So the next renewal was supposed to happen automatically on 27 March, 2019. But it unexpectedly expired today.

I don’t know what’s happening. Can anyone guide me on what to do? My traffic has gone down to zero. I need help asap.

It depends on how the LetsEncrypt certificate was installed and what problem it is running into. If certbot was used, you can try a renew with:

certbot renew

Then you can observe what error occurs, if any, and figure out how to proceed from there.
