And another problem. I was getting SSL errors every now and then, using Firefox. Calling openssl s_client www.emacswiki.org:443 did in fact say that it was expired:

depth=0 CN = emacswiki.org
verify error:num=10:certificate has expired
notAfter=Jul 25 03:49:05 2020 GMT

But my ACME client disagreed:

Processing emacswiki.org with alternative names: www.emacswiki.org
 + Hook: Nothing to do...
 + Checking domain name(s) of existing cert... unchanged.
 + Checking expire date of existing cert...
 + Valid till Sep 26 03:48:59 2020 GMT (Longer than 30 days). Skipping renew!
 + Hook: Nothing to do...

Uhhhh… What?

Then I remembered… Restarting Apache fixed the issue.

I still don’t get it. I do a service apache2 reload when a new cert is deployed. But somehow that doesn’t work. I’ll switch to a restart. Hopefully that does it.

Anyway, I’m sorry if this caused you any issues.
