I am totally new to the whole ssl thing and to Let’s Encrypt. I think, I was sucessful in getting a certificate, but I have no idea how to install the certificate.
For getting a certificate, I used webroot (because certbot-auto --apache does not work).
My domain is: kita-rechtsanwalt.de
I ran this command: ./certbot-auto certonly --webroot -w /var/www/kita-rechtsanwalt.de -d kita-rechtsanwalt.de
It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator webroot, Installer None
Cert not yet due for renewal
You have an existing certificate that has exactly the same domains or certificate name you requested and isn’t close to expiry.
What would you like to do?
1: Keep the existing certificate for now
2: Renew & replace the cert (limit ~5 per 7 days)
Select the appropriate number [1-2] then [enter] (press ‘c’ to cancel): 2
