Installing LE SSL Cert in a VPS while using ClouFlare


#1

Hi, I’m following this thread : How to get a Let’s Encrypt certificate while using CloudFlare
And here’s what I exactly did:
1 - logged in using SSH via Putty.
2 - Cloned LE from git and change to LE directory as shown in the thread.

git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
cd letsencrypt/

3 - automatic install of LE: ./letsencrypt-auto
Things started to be installed and I got the output:
installation succeeded.
No installers seem to be present and working on your system; fix that or try running Certbot with the Certonly command.
4 - I typed the command :certonly --webroot --webroot-path /usr/share/nginx/html/ --renew-by-default --email email@host.tld --text --agree-tos -d example.tld -d www.example.tld as said in the thread and with the necessary changes and I got Certonly command not found.
then I typed /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/letsencrypt certonly --webroot --webroot-path /usr/share/nginx/html/ --renew-by-default --email email@host.tld --text --agree-tos -d example.tld -d www.example.tld and I got this long output:

To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address.

  • Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
    configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
    secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
    also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
    making regular backups of this folder is ideal.

Please I nedd help.
Thanks in advance.
any thoughts ??
