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

certbot renew --force-renewal
