I have a cron job set up to renew the Let’s Encrypt cert on my EE server. The only issue is that it doesn’t restart Nginx, so the certificate still requires my manual intervention every 90 days.
#0 0 */15 * * /opt/letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto renew >> /home/jonathan99/logs/sslrenew.log #0 12 * * * root /usr/local/bin ee site update --le=renew --all >> /var/log/ee/sslrenew.log #0 0 * * 0 sudo ee site update --le=renew --all 2> /dev/null @daily sudo ee site update --le=renew --all >> /home/jonathan99/logs/sslrenew.log
I’ve tried all of the above commands, based on various suggestions I’ve seen for getting the renewal to work. Previously the certificate would fail to renew, but now with the forth of those commands it works.
I tried adding,
--post-hook 'sudo ee stack reload --nginx' but I guess
ee doesn’t accept regular Let’s Encrypt post hooks.
So how do I get it to restart Nginx after a successful certificate renewal?
I have EE v3.8.1
Just use certbot?
Is there any reason to not just use the standard
certbot method, and include the
--post-hook to restart Nginx?
