Let's Encrypt - email address for renewal reminders

Hi there - I’m a relative novice at all this, but have found EasyEngine to make it possible even for me to use a low cost server to run a WordPress site, and I’m getting by 99% of the time.

However, I receive Let’s Encrypt email reminders about renewals - and I have no idea where the email address is configured. I don’t remember specifying one at any point, and I could do with changing it as I have no intention of renewing that domain.

The documentation at https://easyengine.io/docs/lets-encrypt/ says

Email is sent to the address provided in .gitconfig file.

I cannot find this file anywhere - does anyone have any ideas?

Searching has been fruitless, and the last mention of this topic seems to be 5 years ago, but apologies if I’ve missed something obvious.

Many thanks in advance.

I believe that setting lives at /opt/easyengine/config/config.yml. It is simply called le-mail. There is an EEv4 command that is the better practice to change the email.

sudo ee config set le-mail your@email.com

For the definitive guide to all things SSL on EEv4 see the handbook here https://easyengine.io/handbook/internal/ssl/

Thanks again @freedog96150 - I read that page you linked to, and that command seems to be under CloudFlare Integration, which threw me.
