System Logs for ACME renewal



  • Hi,

    Now I've tried searching and I've noticed a lot of people use the logs in /usr/local/ame/<certificate>/ logs but that's empty for me.

    My problem is that my certificates never renew. They just go out of date. If I log into the GUI and click "Issue/Renew" it just works and everything is OK.

    So I'm just wondering where the logs are for the ACME package when it does automated renewals so i can troubleshoot with more information?

    Regards.

    Did you enable the Cron Entry option on the General Settings tab in ACME?
    When you edit the ACME entry for the certificate, is the Status option set to Active?



  • More :

    Add the Cron package.
    It will show you this line :

    This line means that a renewal is tried every day, leaving a trace in the system logs.
    Normally, after 60 days - default value -, it will actually renew the cert.

    Btw : some renew methods can not be done all automatically, that's why a cron rule can be setup - or not.

    Did you really miss this one ?

    I did NOT enable the Cronjob in the general window :)

    I bet the problem is solved now. I can't believe i never saw that.



  • @Gertjan I really did miss that!
