Let’s Encrypt and Certbot for renewal

If you’ve been using Let’s Encrypt for you SSL, you have been probably using the older ‘./letsencrypt-auto –update’ method of renewing your certs but LE has teamed up with CertBot to make renewal even easier. If you are using Debian Jessie, here are the commands (assuming using Nginx):


apt-get install certbot

certbot renew –dry-run

/etc/init.d/nginx stop

certbot renew
