Hi all!

I am using MDNotifyCmd. Here is part of my .conf:
Code:
MDCertificateAuthority https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory
MDCertificateAgreement accepted
MDRenewWindow 31d
MDNotifyCmd "|bin/ssl.bat"
MDomain domaind.dom www.domaind.dom

It basically works, i.e. I am getting new LE's certs, auto-renewal, etc.

I am using MDNotifyCmd to run ssl.bat file. Batch file is relatively simple:
Code:
@ECHO OFF
powershell -command "Start-Sleep -s 0"
Net stop Apache2.4
powershell -command "Start-Sleep -s 10"
Net start Apache2.4
"C:\blat.exe" "D:\SSL.txt" -tf "D:\addr.txt" -subject "Subject" -charset windows-1251"

It stops Apache, starts Apache, and sends e-mail to a few addresses from addr.txt.

All looks very simple. And batch file works file when run manually as admin. Also, it works fine when run under Apache Windows user. Including sending emails.

But if I wait until certs renewed automatically (by MDRenewWindow), nothing happens. No emails at all. Meanwhile I see this record in Apache errog.log file:
Code:
[Wed June 27 22:10:41.012038 2020] [md:error] [pid 1920:tid 484] (20014)Internal error (specific information not available): md[domain.dom] problem[urn:org:apache:httpd:log:AH10108:] detail[MDNotifyCmd "|bin/ssl.bat" failed with exit code 1.]

I searched and found similar issue reported by Steffen (I believe he is local moderator): https://github.com/icing/mod_md/issues/146

But I see no any resolution.

Any ideas?

I am not a Windows export and cannot help you with this, I'm afraid.

Your batch file is run (otherwise mod_md wouild not log its exit code), but for some reason it fails.

If this were on a UNIX machine, I'd say it is unwise to stop the server from a script that has been started by the server. Because when the "parent" process exits, all children usually exit too.

There should be Windows users here that have similar setups and can help you.

When I run in manually, it does everything including both start/stop and email sending. But when rut automatically? I don't know. Because it's not easy to notice and I don't know how force Apache to run all of these stiff. I don't like idea to wait for next renewal or changing expiration to something like 89 to enable daily renewal.

Do you have ideas how to force Apache to do that when I need?

I believe that it's the same as full path to Apache dir. Because I've seen in in Apache examples and it works for other things, like logs. Anyway, I tried full paths as well. No changes sadly.

Totally agree.

I can suppose that problem isn't here. Because it works fine in Windows. CMD.exe isn't child process and has nothing common with httpd.exe. One process runs another one and they exist separately. You can stop any one independently.

Yep! I will waiting for and keep trying.

Anyway, really appreciate your input.
