Certificate Installation Error on Bitnami NGINX / AWS

I’m very new to this so apologies in advance.

I finally got most of the setup commands to process (where I was getting errors before) but at the end, I received errors again and cannot get past this. The preceding commands successfully created the certificates, but when I got to this one, I’ve hit a brick wall again. I really need to finish this to get the site up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

sudo chown root:root /opt/bitnami/nginx/server.*
chown: cannot access ‘/opt/bitnami/nginx/server.*’: No such file or directory

You should include a link to the guide you are following.
And include any other relevant information; like:

  • Which ACME client you are using.
  • What command(s) you ran.
  • Any error messages shown.
  • A copy of the client log file.

then

Seems to add up.
There is a missing step:
The new cert needs to be created (combined copy) to /opt/bitnami/nginx/conf/server.crt

I’m really new to this. What is the command I would use to do that. I’m literally following the guide I referenced.

Thanks so much for your help btw.

The guide has this in it:

Step 3: Configure the Web server to use the Let’s Encrypt certificate
explains what to do next.

Where they say:

I think they mean for you to replace “DOMAIN” with your actual domain.
To see what files are there, try:
ls -l /opt/bitnami/letsencryt/certificates/
