I am running Ubuntu 18.04 / certbot 0.31.0 and attempting to use the certbot-dns-linode plugin. Unfortunately Linode has discontinued their legacy manager and the the version of this plug-in that’s available for Ubuntu 18 does not support the new Cloud Linode API v4 tokens as discussed here: https://www.linode.com/community/questions/18380/certbot-dns-linode-api-permissions
So now I’ve installed certbot-auto in attempts to use the most recent version. This is a bit confusing to me when it comes to how things will be maintained in the future.
- Can the two versions peacefully co-exist or should I uninstall certbot so that only one remains?
- What becomes of the existing certbot binary and the systemd job?
- I don’t see any certbot-auto service in systemd - when I issue new certificates with certbot-auto will they auto renew?
- Do certbot and certbot-auto share the same certificate directory?
Apparently certbot-auto doesn’t support the dns plugins and the docs seem pretty discouraging about installing from source. Is there an easy way to get a newer version of certbot running on Ubuntu 18 so that I can use this DNS plugin? The relevant functionality I need was added here: https://github.com/certbot/certbot/commit/333ea90d1b1348933aa6e586472bb62e182bfebc
