Backup/Restore Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate from/to a VPS


#1

Hi,

I need to reset my VPS… How can I proceed to backup and then restore my Certificate?

Thanks.


#2

backup entire /etc/letsencrypt/live
use cp -L option as they are simlinks.
but I’d rather just left it behind (or revoke everything) and just create new certs on new vps.

This procedure will only get the certs.
When you go to renew them - it won’t be able to.
You can understand what I mean by looking at the output of:
certbot certificates

[list your certs with whichever program used]
