[ Removed Namecheap support from discussion ]

Hi John,

There is a previous wplug-internet thread on this topic:


The board has not approved any expenditure to renew this certificate (or 
even discussed it yet), but it's OK because this certificate is not in 
production, for anything, at this time.

We should renew it whenever we're ready to actually do anything with it 
(or perhaps, if it's available by that time, get a free certificate from 
the Let's Encrypt project) - it's a domain-validated certificate, so 
issuance (and renewal) is pretty instantaneous.  Are you thinking you'll 
be in a position to need an SSL certificate signed by a "real" CA on the 
server in the next couple of weeks?  I remember you mentioning that you 
wanted to do some work on the membership portal soon...

If you think you'll be in a position to be able to use it before next 
board meeting, I'll go ahead and renew it now, and ask the board to 
ratify the expenditure at the next meeting.  It's only $9.00/year, and 
worst case if the board wants to be difficult and not approve the 
expense, I suppose I can always donate the cost. ;-)

At that point, I'd just need to figure out if Namecheap can use the same 
CSR we sent them last time, or if we have to go through the whole 
process all over again (generating a new private key and CSR).
