I am using Bitnami on Lightsail, and I have renewed the Let's Encrypt Certificate twice. Both times I did it by following the guide provided by Lightsail. However, upon success the certbot said one allegedly could run "certbot renew" to renew "all" certificates non-interactively. So far I have still opted for manual renewal route as per Lightsail's guide, just to be on the safe side, but I wonder (not knowing very much about the details of it all):
- Can "certbot renew" be used instead?
1b. And if so; is it automatic? Meaning among other things:
1c. Would one still manually have to change the old TXT records in the DNS Zone for the new ones?
1d. Does the "certbot renew" route also demand that one restarts Apache? Obviously, I would prefer not having to do that. (If this is not the case, I can't see the upside of using an "automatic" renewal, as it is still basically manual.)
(2. An extra - slightly unrelated - question. When I had done the manual renewal, for a little while the old certificate still showed in the browser, but I had deleted the old TXT-records from the DNS Zone. But after some time the new certificate started showing. Is that okay? Or is there some risk involved in that?)
