Let's Encrypt - Auto Renew Failure via Cron Job

Hi,

I have a 'Let's Encrypt' SSL Certificate securing my website which failed to auto-renew this morning. I installed it onto my digitalocean server using the tutorial provided by them at the point of setup. It included the setting up of a cron-job that should auto-renew the certificate before it ran out but this has failed giving the following error: -

All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed:
/etc/letsencrypt/live/www.example.com/fullchain.pem (failure)
Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.example.com.conf

Open in new window


Is it best to simply re-install a new certificate? What's the best way to proceed?
