Renewing Let's Encrypt certificates

published on December 13, 2016.
Heads-up! You're reading an old post and the information in it is quite probably outdated.

Back in July I wrote how to set up SSL certificates with Let’s Encrypt. One of my certificates was due to a renewal, and anticipating some work to renew it, I decided to blog how to renew a Let’s Encrypt certificate.

It was quite anticlimactic:

sudo certbot renew

That’s it. All that was required to renew a certificate. certbot even figures out which of the certificates is due to a renewal and renews only those.

Guess I can go back and do other things now.

Happy hackin’!
