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:
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-16-04#step-6-set-up-auto-renewal

In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Let's Encrypt to obtain a free SSL certificate and use it with Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04. We will also show you how to automatically renew your SSL certificate. If you're running a different web server, simply follow your web server's documentation to learn how to use the certificate with your setup.

Thanks!!

I did sudo certbot renew and it gave command not found.

I have two domais in my droplet... radha.org.br certificate is ok and arun.com.br certificate not ok

@hansen

I did sudo letsencrypt renew and it gave back 'unauthorized' for arun.com.br

    It's free certificates, so it really does not matter that much. Just create new certificates.

    You should follow the guide and create certificates for every domain you have.

Gratitude!!

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

I'm getting an error with sudo letsencrypt renew

Error:
