How I succeed to renew SSL with certbot in AMI Linux

Hello fellas. Last week I had some major issues with our SSL which wasn’t renewed. At first look, all was in place. I use Let’s encrypt certificate and Certbot tool. As the title mention, it’s all happening on Amazon AMI Linux.

The problem was that the cronjob was not executed. I configured the script initially using sudo:

$ sudo crontab -e

In order to fix the problem, I had to use crontab -e and run the script as root, as you can see below:


$ crontab -e

And at the end of file add the following:

0 0 * * * sudo -u root /usr/bin/certbot renew --quiet
