Install LetsEncrypt certificate
Today I installed LetsEncrypt certificate on one of the production server.
I can not believe it is so simple to secure a website running on an Ubuntu server
sudo apt-get install certbot python-certbot-nginx sudo certbot --nginx -d mydomain.com -d www.mydomain.com
It even configures nginx (or apache) server for you.
To manually renew run the following:
certbot renew --quiet
But you don’t have to, cause
certbot is so awesome that it automatically adds an entry into crontab so that certbot runs twice daily. There is an entry under
Run the following to check the status of renewal service :
sudo systemctl status certbot.timer
If the automated renewal process ever fails, Let’s Encrypt will send a message to the email you specified, warning you when your certificate is about to expire.
