So let’s retrace everything. I’ve been looking at my setup.

I check by cron if new certs are available, daily. If finds new certs, in puts them in


There are now other directories in there, it always overwrites old ones with new ones. 
I then use Dan Langille’s anvil-port to pull them to my jails (sent-puller, also by cron), where they are stored in 

/usr/local/etc/ssl of that jail.

After putting them there, cert-puller automatically restarts the service(s) that rely on the certs. Of course, all my applications point to those certs.

Please describe your setup.
