1. The problem I’m having:
Let’s encrypt seems to think my certificate will expire soon.
I have searched and found posts in this forum that seem to either say:
- Caddy will eventually renew those but with no explanation as to why the renewal is not set early enough to prevent Let’s Encrypt to generate the warning email.
- Change the renewal value or force delete the certificate but, again, with no clear explanation on how any of this is performed.
Is it possible to get a clear step by step explanation on how to solve this?
2. Error messages and/or full log output:
I received the following email:
“Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 7 days (on 2023-04-09). Please make sure to renew your certificate before then, or visitors to your web site will encounter errors.”
3. Caddy version:
4. How I installed and ran Caddy:
Came as part of a Digital Ocean droplet install for the Owncast server.
a. System environment:
Linux owncast-server 4.19.0-22-cloud-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.260-1 (2022-09-29) x86_64
d. My complete Caddy config:
I have no idea where this is located. Posts on this forum seemed to indicate
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/caddy but this does not exists. Documentation mentions the CaddyFile but I couldn’t find a clear explanation as to where this is located either.
