I originally installed certs on a particular system with certbot in manual mode. Situations have changed with that server and I’d like to do renewals with the nginx plugin. I’m not sure what the best practice is for this. Can I run certbot commands to make the needed changes? I can’t seem to find the best instructions if so.
I’m willing to do .conf file changes, but I’m curious if I can do something like revoke the current certificates, then run $ sudo certbot --nginx to get a new certificate? Are there any potential issues with this approach?
Thank you very much!
