Letsencrypt renewal


Quick question. Just installed Pydio Cells on Centos 7.6, no reverse proxy, no docker, using embedded caddy server + letsencrypt certs.

So, we were wondering, are these certificates renewed automatically, should we set up a cron job?
Should we install certbot to handle this for us?

Can’t find anything in the docs about renewal, so unsure how (and if) this is handled. Perhaps certs are checked and renewed upon server start only?


Hello @swaf and welcome to the Forum.

In a setup like yours, the certificate renewal is automatically done by the embedded Caddy. You do not have to do anything. You might directly refer to the Caddy documentation to get more details if you want to understand how it is internally done.
