i’m planning a server migration for our website soon. I have some questions about the migration of the certificates to the new server.
I’m using this tutorial to do a “correct” migration : https://ivanderevianko.com/2019/03/migrate-letsencrypt-certificates-certbot-to-new-server Is this the correct way to do ? Or would you suggest copying the complete /etc/letsencrypt folder to the new server ?
With the actual server i have to restart nginx manually with sudo because the certificates have for user root:root. Can i change the file owner to another user so that i can set a cron restarting nginx automatically ? (Here is the ls -l command on the archive folder: -rw-r–r-- 1 root root 1704 Dec 25 07:03 privkey23.pem)
If we have a problem during the server migration(or after migration has been done). Is it ok for us to rollback to the current server ? If whatever error happens with the certificate migration, i’m concerned about how to manage this
I’m going to do a new installation on the new server, so i’ll probably have the latest version of letsencrypt (ubuntu 18.04). Is there any compatibility problem to move from the old version (certbot 0.26.1) to a new one ?
Thanks a lot for your time!
