Does anybody have an idea how to use certbot and nodejs I haven’t found anything to help me out I’ll be really appreciate it if anybody can give me a hand with that even though it’s so easy to use with a Apache 2 bot I haven’t found any documentation for node Js

Hi @taveras78,

One of the most common approaches is to use nginx as a proxy for nodejs. In that case, you can use Certbot’s support for nginx to get and install the certificate in nginx, and configure nginx to pass through requests to your Node application.

If you’re using nodejs directly to receive connections from the Internet, you’ll need to consider whether you can make port 80 available to perform validations, or find some other way to perform the validations to prove to Let’s Encrypt that you control your domain name.
