Migrating to a new server - need to move letsencrypt


I have a general question about migrating to a new server.

Can someone direct me to a post discussing how to move from one Ubuntu linux server to another. I need to upgrade my nextcloud system to new hardware and need to move my letsencrypt installation to the new server.


Transfer SSL to a new server Debian9/ownCloud10 > Ubuntu16.04/nextCloud12

The important thing is to copy /etc/letsencrypt over. Then just reinstall and recreate any cron jobs.


Hi Cool110,
I’m in the process now. I’ve copied over my /etc/letsencrypt to the new server. I’ve used the following command to install letsencrypt
sudo apt-get install python-letsencrypt-apache

is that it? or do I need to to anything else before I cut over the correct IP address?

Thanks a bunch!


Just make sure the web server is configured to use the LE cert and not the default self signed one. Also try running letsencrypt renew --dry-run to check that renew will work.
