I always have tribulations working with Linux (any distro). I just don’t understand why it’s so difficult AND convoluted. I’ve tried this endeavour for around three weeks now and just can’t hold my sh!t together any more, someone please help! Nothing I do works. No instruction or documentation I follow ends up with working results, I’m despondent. Why is it so difficult to create a LetsEncrypt cert? I thought this was supposed to be piss easy! Why is there no documentation that actually works? EACH and every thread/forum/blog post I consult gives me DIFFERENT instructions? How the hell is this possible? Steps being left out or totally ignored resulting in me troubleshooting and trawling through other Linux forums to fix something mundane before I can work on creating a certificate! Why?!!?
I’ve just now installed yet another distro; Ubuntu and having the exact same issues even though I’m following steps exactly. Silly things like the command “su” not working in Ubuntu (you have to use “sudo su”) just makes me want to kill myself, URGH! I have issues with almost each and every step I take. Posts instructing you to create a config file for Let’s Encrypt but fail to mention that you have to create the directory first! What, really? Why leave out this very important part?? I spent 30 minutes on a tangent before finding an obscure thread mentioning this!
Are there any good, step-by-step documentation out there, for dummies, on how to create/issue Lets Encrypt certificates? Preferably one that does not leave out details that may cause hindrance?
