Hi, I'm currently using Lets Encrypt as my AutoSSL provider. What are the ramifications of switching to Sectigo as the provider? Will it immediately try to replace all the existing LE certs? Are there any potential problems with doing this?

Thanks!

Hello @swbrains

Switching to Sectigo will start an AutoSSL run but it will not replace valid certificates, it will replace or install certificates on domains with invalid or expired certificates.

Thanks! Will this cause any issues with existing sites that have LE certificates when they later expire or will they simply get Sectigo certs at renewal?

If you have "Allow AutoSSL to replace invalid or expiring non-AutoSSL certificates" set under the Options in "Manage AutoSSL" then AutoSSL will replace expiring certificates, regardless of the CA used.
