Certificate for our website (and several others) has expired

From Firefox: "Websites prove their identity via certificates, which are valid for a set time period. The certificate for confluence.org expired on 10/15/2021.


When I look at the certificate, I see that it also applies to “www.animadance.org”, and several other sites that you host.

Was just coming here to post this. I run VermontLibraries.org and this error just showed up today or yesterday. If you see my last post, this was a certificate that was renewed in October, so maybe there is something else going on? Thanks for looking into it.

Well I certainly have egg on my face. We made a change yesterday using automated tooling designed to keep our machines in a known state. Unfortunately, the certificate that was new as of October was not put into that tooling, so when I applied the “known state” yesterday, I inadvertently removed the most current certificate and put the old (expired) certificate back in place.

Unfortunately the certificate renewal process still involves manual human steps. I’m adding a warning in our howto document about this incident, which I hope will prevent me (or other future admins) from making the same mistake again. Thanks to both of you for flagging this.

Thanks for the speedy resolution. All fixed now (and it kind of looks good to my organization when something goes sideways and is fixed fairly promptly - thank you!)
