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 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
