My web server is a custom nginx build that I need to configure and run manually (OS is Ubuntu 18.04). I got a certificate via
certbot --standalone because the
--nginx option didn’t work (somewhat expected given that my setup probably violates that script’s many assumptions).
I would like to know if it is possible to configure nginx manually, ideally with command like
certbot renew --nginx that I can put in cron, but that only creates whatever files it needs to serve from my www root dir for authentication and then performs the authentication itself and renews the certificate, but specifically that doesn’t try to mess with my nginx config files or tries to restart my server.
Is there any way I can do that?
