Someone so nice to help me renew my Lets Encrypt certificate?

I have not logged in my droplet for a while. I use Putty to log in.

Thanks a lot!!

Hello, I used this as a guide to setup my self-signed cert for a subdomain. Everything worked and seemed to be fine but my cert expired and the auto-renewal did not happen, I did run sudo certbot renew --dry-run and got no errors.

Why did the auto renew not take place after 30 days?

Hi @Areku

Just log in to your server and run this command (and then restart your web server):

sudo certbot renew

But you might want to setup auto-renewal, so you don’t have to think about it:

certbot renew --force-renewal

I’m getting an error with sudo letsencrypt renew

Error: WARNING:letsencrypt.cli:Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/ produced an unexpected error: ‘server’. Skipping. All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ (failure) 1 renew failure(s), 0 parse failure(s)



My two certs are now apt for automatic renewal. Thank you!
