I am a beginner at all this server stuff, and I did a few stupid things. This domain is my first time delving into this world, so I had to rebuild my DigitalOcean droplet quite a few times. My project is a Mezzanine Blog, and so I use the fabric file they supply. I have rebuilt my droplet around 4 or 5 times. I also hit my rate limit on making certs, as the command output shows below.
/etc/letsencrypt/csr directory, I see my past certs, I believe. My site is currently not secured, and it all started after I ran my fabric file. I assume that messed up where certs were installed, so I rebuilt my droplet. Now I still have the issue. When I run
sudo certbot certificates I get
no certs found.
How can I make my site secure again?
My domain is: Chairbirds.com
I ran this command:
$ sudo certbot --nginx
It produced this output:
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator nginx, Installer nginx
