After creating certificates i can find .cert and .key files nowhere


#1

after creating certificates i can find .cert and .key files that i need to configure nginx nowhere

i ran

sudo ./letsencrypt-auto certonly -d domain.com

#2

They should be at /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.com/fullchain.pem and /etc/letsencrypt/live/domain.com/key.pem respectively.


#3

Note the files are in .pem format, which works just fine. Don’t worry, I was slightly thrown by this at the start too.
