Change /etc/letsencrypt/live when using manual cert creation

Hi there!
I am trying to manually create a certificate using ./letsencrypt-auto certonly -a manual --rsa-key-size 4096 -d -d on Mac OSX El Capitan under a dev account (non admin/root). brew et. al. are also installed locally to that user.

Is there a way to change the default cert folder so that I can obtain the keys under the dev user?

Run the client with --help all and see the paths: section.

Thanks @Osiris! I think it is --cert-path that I was looking for!

There seem to be some problems with this approach tho …
Can someone confirm that?

Also: I need to run the letsencrypt as non-sudo, which is the primary reason why I wanna specify the certs (cert.pem, chain.pem, fullchain.pem, privkey.pem) in a dir under my dev user. Any ideas on running letsencrypt without sudo with the path commands?

If that helps anyone. I found this to be very helpful
