Hi there,
I know to get a cert for Windows with Apache running (Xmapp) is possible.

Is it possible to get a cert for Windows with Nginx?

Thanks.

The steps described in that article are actually not Apache-specific at all, except for how to install the resulting certificate in the Apache configuration in the final step. They should work equally well with another server as long as you can create files in its webroot.

One thing to bear in mind about these instructions is that they require a manual step every time you obtain a certificate, which will also be required when you renew the certificate. Let’s Encrypt certificates are valid for 90 days, so you’ll have to perform this step at least that often, unless you can find a way to script it on Windows.
