    Hi,

    with letsencrypt a certificate has to be renewd within 3 months. Plesk do this job monthly. Is it possible to change it from 1 month to 2 month or 3 month?

    Reason is, that I have to manully add this certificate to my cdn provider and 1 month is a bit short.

    Thanks

    Hi Marc77,

    it IS possible, but not recommended ( reason will follow below as additional information ).

    => Home > Tools & Settings > Scheduled Tasks > (name of the task ) Extension letsencrypt


    Additional information:


    Pls. keep in mind the following situation:

    domainA.com => Let's Encrypt certificate issued => 01.01.2017, first available renew => 60 days after issuing day => 01.03.2017 => expire date: 31.03.2017
    domainB.com => Let's Encrypt certificate issued => 01.02.2017, first available renew => 60 days after issuing day => 01.04.2017 => expire date: 31.04.2017
    domainC.com => Let's Encrypt certificate issued => 01.03.2017, first available renew => 60 days after issuing day => 30.04.2017 => expire date: 29.05.2017

    Task scheduled to:

    01.03.2017
    (01.04.2017)
    01.05.2017
    (01.06.2017)
    01.07.2017

    Let's Encrypt task: Scheduled every first day of the month will cover each possible renewing day of the three certificates, while a scheduled task of 2 months for example will not cover all first possible renew dates. ;)

    Ok, thank you very much for the detailed explanation. I see the problem.

    in this case, I have created all certificates today. That means they will all expire together and I set the cron to 60 days. Its still 30 days before they will expire.

    This should work, right?

    Hi Marc77,

    as I wrote, it IS possible, but not recommended... just imagine, adding new (sub)domains in the future - I can nearly assure you, that you will accidently miss a renew - date. ;)
