Easyengine – Renewing SSL

When I first started to manage my server, I preferred the manual option but as time progressed, it became cumbersome to keep up with it. However, in this tutorial, I’ve included both methods!

Requirements:
Easyengine and basic knowledge of terminal commands.

Log into the terminal via ssh as administrator/root.

Important: Replace my domain name with yours.

Option A: Manually Renewing an SSL Certificate

ee site update meepingblog.com –letsencrypt=renew

You will be greeted with the following:
Renewing SSl cert for https://meepingblog.com
Reload : nginx [OK]
SUCCESS: Certificate was successfully renewed For htt
ps://meepingblog.com
Your cert will expire within 89 days.
Expiration DATE: Wed Sep 20 03:45:00 UTC 2018

Option B: Letting Easyengine take care of all of your SSL Needs

The following command is a cron job that will automatically renew each certificate attached to your sites before expiry date.

~# crontab -l

You will be greeted with the following:

The command will input the following line
0 0 * * 0 ee site update –le=renew –all 2> /dev/null # Renew all letsencrypt SSL cert. Set by EasyEngine

And that concludes the end of this tutorial!
