How do I clean reinstall certbot

I’m running a nginx deployment on ubuntu 18.04 via Vultr… A user in the cloudflare forums said I should use Cloudflare instead of Let’s Encrypt, so I deleted Let’s Encrypt, and my site stopped loading. Now I am just trying to re-install Let’s Encrypt, but I keep getting an error.

when I run nginx -t , it shows some certificate error.

Hi @jbehrmusic

you have two options:

  • Install a self signed certificate (change the paths manual) (or)
  • Disable that vHost / server block, so you have only a working port 80 vHost.

Then create a new certificate.


I’m pretty new to command line and linux stuff. How exactly would I do this? Which option is easier out of the two?
