Multiple servers for subdomains


#1

Hi guys,

Sorry, if the questions is dumb, I’ve tried to search for this case with no luck.

My setup is:

  1. VPS running apache for wordpress site example.com, and running nginx for Discourse forum on community.example.com (apache sends everything related to community to nginx)
  2. another VPS running apache for Pydio file server on files.example.com

How should I install Let’s Encrypt in my case?

Thank you!

Yes, either the official client or one of the other clients

You can either the same thing on the second server, or use the “manual” method, running from your first server. Personally I’ve tended to put a client in each machine, along with a script which checks and renews certificates automatically when needed.
