How To Renew Aws SSL Certificate? -Before We Get Into This Topic, Let’s Learn Some Basics Of This Topic
Replace the SSL certificate for your Classic Load Balancer
you installed an SSL server certificate on your load balancer. Each certificate has a set time of validity. Before the certificate’s validity period expires, you must renew or replace it.
AWS Certificate Manager certificates installed on your load balancer can be automatically renewed. Before certificates expire, ACM tries to renew them. See Managed renewal in the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide for further details. If you imported a certificate into ACM, you must keep track of the certificate’s expiration date and renew it before it runs out. In the AWS Certificate Manager User Guide, see Importing certificates for further details. New requests use the renewed certificate when a certificate placed on a load balancer is renewed.
To replace a certificate, you must first create a new certificate using the same processes that you used to create the previous one. The certificate can then be replaced. New requests use the new certificate once a certificate deployed on a load balancer is replaced.
Requests that have already been received by a load balancer node and are awaiting routing to a healthy destination are unaffected by renewing or replacing a certificate.
