LetsEncrypt SSL Certificate Renewal Command

The LetsEncrypt certificates expire every 90 days. You will get a reminder email from the LetsEncrypt CA a couple of weeks before expiry.

Here is the email that I received

From: <expiry@letsencrypt.org>
Subject: Let's Encrypt certificate expiration notice
Message-Id: <20160322T090444.5984058796943941351.expiry@letsencrypt.org>
To: <dp@ii.net>


Your certificate (or certificates) for the names listed below will expire in 19 days (on 11 Apr 16 06:10 +0000). Please make sure to renew your certificate before then, or visitors to your website will encounter errors.


For any questions or support, please visit https://community.letsencrypt.org/. Unfortunately, we can't provide support by email.
