ssh invalid but it's not..

DO is saying that they are showing that the SSL for the domain ( tympan . org ) is expired.

But when I log into the cpanel and go to security, it says that the Let’s Encrypt is still active…
I even put in another key yesterday and am getting the same issue.

My web browser is showing that the SSL certificate on the domain specified expired on April 02 of this year. I’m not seeing that cPanel is installed on that server as I cannot reach ports 2082, 2083, 2086, or 2087. Are you certain that you’re renewing the certificate in the right place for your setup? That would be very relative to how you configured this server.


thank you so much for your quick reply! I really appreciate it..
it’s possible I am not looking at the right space.., I am a n00b and the website was recently handed over to me including the admin/use of digitalocean .. is there a place to renew/view the certificate via DO frontend/GUI that doesn’t require I ssh into the server?

  • From my angle I do not believe that there is a GUI associated with that website, I’m not seeing any publicly accessible locations for one. Over SSH it may be easy, depending on how they had set it up. If you could ask them it might save you time. If, for example, they used certbot then it would just be running this command over SSH:

    certbot renew

    Though, most of the time certbot sets itself up for renewals so I have a feeling you may receive an error that you then need to troubleshoot separately. Perhaps not, it’s just where my instinct leads me.
