Before ProxMox implemented the possibility to configure the LE certificate directly in the ui i had used the same renewal settings i use on all my other servers: On the first of the month, no matter if its due to expiring or not.

Is there any way i can get proxmox to do the same with its internal tools or do i need to go back to manual certificates with I want the certificate to be renewed forcibly on every first of the month, not daily when its due to expire.
We renew the certificate once there are only 30 days left before it's renewal, that's very similar to how certbot or do it by default and works for most.

If whyever you need a force renew every specific day then yes, you need to do it with something else, like a custom setup.
