I noticed something a few days ago when visiting one of my sites and my browser said the cert was expired.rocksolid light 0.7.2
I checked the cert with certbot, which said it was not expired (recently renewed). Then checked remotely with openssl, which said it's expired. I verified that nginx was configured properly to use the correct cert, then finally restarted nginx, which solved the issue.
So I'm assuming that nginx reloads the cert at some interval, but not each connection (which makes sense). The cert had expired within a few hours of me getting the expired message, but had already been renewed. I've never noticed this with my sites since I probably haven't just happened to visit at just the right time.
Anyone else noticed this, or know how often nginx checks the cert?
