Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.
My domain is: lyte.sg
I ran this command: No certbot command to automate wildcard cert request from Nginx config
It produced this output: N/A
My web server is (include version):Nginx 1.14.0-0ubuntu1.6
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu Server 18.04
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: DNS - AWS Route53
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): 0.31.0
I have successfully tested a certbot --nginx setup for a static FQDN test certificate (e.g. static.domain.net). However, when I changed Nginx server block to wildcard style *.domain.net it looks like Certbot does not recognise/support that
> # certbot --nginx > Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log > Plugins selected: Authenticator nginx, Installer nginx > No names were found in your configuration files. Please enter in your domain > name(s) (comma and/or space separated) (Enter 'c' to cancel): c > Please specify --domains, or --installer that will help in domain names autodiscovery, or --cert-name for an existing certificate name.
I’ve look through a number of articles written by different people on the procedure for request wildcard certs from Let’s Encrypt, and they all do so as manual steps to launch certbot certonly + DNS plugin adjustments, then manually re-configuring Ngnix after obtaining the cert.
I guess there’s no combo procedure to auto-detect from Nginx the wildcard domains and interacting with both LE and Route53?
