Hi,

Noticing that WHM seems to be issuing duplicate Let's Encrypt certs for each account:
These have overlapping dates.

If I go into the cPanel for a domain I can see four two of each type. See screenshot.

Looking at serial number Chrome reads the last one in this list.

Is this expected behaviour?

Thanks,
Steve

Hello,

It looks like those are just the old certificates that were replaced before they expired. Per the Manage AutoSSL document:

Each AutoSSL provider may wait for a specific amount of time to replace an AutoSSL-provided certificate before it expires. For example:
  • AutoSSL will attempt to renew certificates that cPanel, Inc. provides when they expire within 15 days.
  • AutoSSL will attempt to renew certificates that Let's Encrypt provides when they expire within 29 days.
Thank you.

Thank you.

So am I right in thinking that the old ones weren't issued to mail. and the newer ones are?
