I want to build Boulder on CentOS and run something like Lets Encrypt locally

I’m going to build Boulder locally using CentOS. How should I build it? Please give me as much detail as possible.
It’s a translation, so it may not be transmitted well, but thank you.

You might also find that running something like Smallstep could be a better choice: https://smallstep.com/blog/private-acme-server/ . You will immediately see that the README is much less daunting than that of Boulder: https://github.com/smallstep/certificates

Boulder is made to serve the specific needs of Let’s Encrypt, whereas other ACME servers (like Smallstep) are made to serve more general-purpose needs.
