Hi Jota and thanks for your reply.
The certificate is valid because, as I mentioned in my original post, the certificate renewal script runs successfully when run manually with the command
However, as I also mentioned it is not renewing automatically. My crontab under the command sudo crontab -l looks like this
# Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron.
# Each task to run has to be defined through a single line
# indicating with different fields when the task will be run
# and what command to run for the task
# To define the time you can provide concrete values for
# minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon),
# and day of week (dow) or use '*' in these fields (for 'any').#
# Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron's system
# daemon's notion of time and timezones.
# Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through
# email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected).
# For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts
# at 5 a.m every week with:
# 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/
# For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8)
# m h dom mon dow command
0 0 1 * * /etc/lego/renew-certificate.sh 2> /dev/null
and my renew script looks like this
sudo nano /etc/lego/renew-certificate.sh
sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop apache
sudo /usr/local/bin/lego --firstname.lastname@example.org --domains=*****server.uk --do$
sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start apache
Other than these two scripts is there anything else that I should be doing to have the certificate renew on the first of every month and if not, why might it not be happening?
