How to fix your SSL cert to never have to worry about it again

I see your SSL cert has expired. That should never happen. Doesn't need to. Mine never has.

Just install Certbot: https://certbot.eff.org/

Its really simple to set up, assuming you have shell access. It automatically refreshes your cert, and it does so well before its due to expire, so even if it goes wrong, you have plenty of time to address the issue. Only time I ever had an issue in a few years of running it was when I got a notification that I needed to upgrade Certbot due to an API change.
