This is not a Pidgin question, it is something that has to be done on 
the server.

I'm not sure you can actually renew a certificate and have it treated as 
the same trusted one, but even if you can, you shouldn't as one of the 
reasons for giving finite lives to certificates is the longer they are 
in use the more chance that someone will have cracked the key.  You 
should create a new certificate (and distribute it, or at least its key 
fingerprint, by secure means that don't rely on the certificate).

I am pretty sure that Open Fire Management Console has nothing to do 
with Pidgin.
