AutoSSL Fails to renew SSL on WordPress Site Print

  • 0

If you have a WordPress site and you get an email notification that AutoSSL failed to renew the SSL certiicate. This likely indicate your website is forcing a redirection that prevents the certificate issuing server from accessing the URL to veriy the SSL certificate.

Possible way to resolve it is by excluding .txt and .tmp files from being redirected. You can add the following line to your .htaccess under the Rewrite Rules:

RewriteEngine On  <--- This line may not be necessary if it already exist in your .htaccess file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !\.(txt|tmp)$
