Hey there. The root certificate that devcert has generated and installed appears to have a lifetime of one month as seen in the image above. Am I missing something, or shouldn't there be a process for automatic renewal of the root certificate?

I'm on MacOS High Sierra and solved it by removing private-key.key and certificate.cert inside ~/Library/Application Support/devcert/certificate-authority, then removing all domains from the index.txt inside the same folder as well as all domains within ~/Library/Application Support/devcert/domains to force devcert into generating and signing new certificates.

I just ran into this issue too. I thought I could just delete the certs and the ~/Library/Application Support/devcert dir and start again but I got errors after deleting that and trying to run devcert. Is there a recommended way to renew?

I seem to remember that the old version of devcert that installed to .config gave a reallllly long validity certificate, but this one is only one month. Why the change?

On Windows check out this post to delete the devcert from the Trusted Root Certification Authorities then open ${User}\AppData\Local\devcert and delete everything inside certificate-authority.
