Security Certificate Expiration

    I got a notification while attempting to connect to the site a little while ago about Kintsugi being an untrusted website because its security credentials had expired as of something like twenty minutes ago. I wish I'd screenshotted it, but on reading the details I just told it to go ahead and patch me through since I figured it was a momentary hiccup of some sort.

    Figured I'd put this up and ping @seebs about it, even though it's probably well in hand.

    Yeah, Let's Encrypt certificates expire after three months IIRC. Though I think there's a way to automatically renew them?

    yeah, you can set up a cron job for it

    although i think nowadays certbot automatically adds the job when you install it?

    I'm not using certbot. Anyway, yes, I had the script running, but I forgot to create a directory, so it looked fine until it needed to renew, by which time I'd seen the weekly job saying it was running often enough that I wasn't reading closely.
