My domain

I ran this command: unknown

It produced this output: none yet

My web server is (include version): nextcloud plugin on freenas

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Freenas version 11.2u - running a container of Nextcloud (plugin)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): Unable to use Certbot, says Access Denied - logged in as root.

I am having trouble finding the proper instructions to configure Certbot on NextCloud plugin for FreeNas. I see a whole lot of instructions on the let’s encrpyt site, but I am unsure which version to follow. Apologies, I am really new to all of this. I just got Certbot installed into NextCloud, were I had to change the default repo inside the Certbot container just to be able to download and install certbot. Now that it is installed, I am looking for the instructions for my version of OS and plugin.

Can you help me find the right information?

Thanks for the light!
