Verify Certificate Updates

I have installed the Lets Encrypt container and it is working great. My question I have is how do I verify the certificates are updating properly so they don’t expire. I am lead to believe the certs update automatically and I will not need to do anything but I also want to check them once in a while to make sure they are updating.

check the certs the day after they’re set to expire, if they are expired it’s not working, if they’re not expired, it’s working.

but yes, they auto renew for you.

you could also write a bash script to email you if the curl results in a certificate that is expired.

They only attempt to renew when they are to expire within 30 days. You can check the logs in the config folder. More info in the readme.

@aptalca Thanks I did look at the logs and totally makes sense now. Thanks for the help.
