Certificate Expiry Monitor

About

Certificate Expiry Monitor is an open source monitoring tool for certificates. It monitors websites and emails you when the certificates are about to expire.

See the example site: https://certificatemonitor.org/

Requirements

  • PHP 5.6+
  • OpenSSL
  • PHP must allow remote fopen.

Installation

Unpack, change some variables, setup a cronjob and go!

First get the code and unpack it to your webroot:

cd /var/www/html/
git clone https://github.com/RaymiiOrg/certificate-expiry-monitor.git

Create the database files, outside of your webroot. If you create these inside your webroot, everybody can read them.

touch /var/www/certificate-expiry-monitor-db/pre_checks.json touch /var/www/certificate-expiry-monitor-db/checks.json touch /var/www/certificate-expiry-monitor-db/deleted_checks.json chown -R $wwwuser /var/www/certificate-expiry-monitor-db/*.json

These files are used by the tool as database for checks.

Change the location of these files in variables.php:

// set this to a location outside of your webroot so that it cannot be accessed via the internets.

$pre_check_file = '/var/ww/html/certificate-expiry-monitor/pre_checks.json';
$check_file = '/var/ww/html/certificate-expiry-monitor/checks.json';
$deleted_check_file = '/var/ww/html/certificate-expiry-monitor/deleted_checks.json';

Also change the $current_domain variable, it is used in all the emails.

$current_domain = "certificatemonitor.org";

Set up the cronjob to run once a day:

# /etc/cron.d/certificate-exipry-monitor
1 1 * * * $wwwuser /path/to/php /var/ww/html/certificate-expiry-monitor/cron.php >> /var/log/certificate-expiry-monitor.log 2>&1

The default timeout for checks is 2 seconds. If this is to fast for your internal services, this can be raised in the variables.php file.
