Just want to check if only me but this doesnt work.
Iโ€™ve PMed JMSolo few hours ago as he was the one that installed the quickbox DNS for me, but it doesnt seem to autorenew. He states it should on the day it expires, but it didnt. Now when i go to dashboard, i first get an error page (Not secure) with error message NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID.
I also looked in my crontab -e and i do have these

30 0 * * * "/root/.acme.sh"/acme.sh --cron --home "/root/.acme.sh" > /dev/null
30 2 * * 1 ~/acme.sh/acme.sh --cron --home ~/acme.sh > /dev/null
30 2 * * 1 ~/acme.sh/acme.sh --cron --home ~/acme.sh > /dev/null

but now the day after it expired i have an unsecure site.
Do note i have not touched anything with this dns stuff, everything is after jmsolo installed it for me from my order. Anyone can help?

Forgot to mention the solution, as JMSolo autorenew doesnt work.
If you need to renew, just sign in to root ssh and write

/root/.acme.sh/acme.sh --renew -d domain.quickbox.io

Dont forget to stop apache2 first and start it after when done.
Now my site is secure via https again.

I answered your PM. The problem is the duplicate entries you have in your cron, not necessarily the lack of domain. It will automagically find the cert and update accordingly.

I wanted to post an update as none of the above solutions worked for me. It seems that the issue with auto-renew is related to apache2 not being stopped by acme.sh when it attempts to renew. I get the following error when I attempted manual renewal using bash ~/acme.sh-master/acme.sh --renew -d mydomain.com

So i stopped the apache2 service manually (systemctl stop apache2.service) then ran the above command, it successfully renewed letsencrypt. I restarted apache2 manually as well and itโ€™s working.
