I'm hoping someone can help me regarding my situation. I have a raspberry pi with airsonic that I'd like to stream my music remotely with a reverse proxy.
Following the documentation on Airsonic's website, it mentions to have the certificates installed from Let's Encrypt/Certbot. Because I'd like to have this accessed only by myself, I'm lost since I don't have a domain name.
My domain is: Not available
I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --standalone
It produced this output: The Let's Encrypt certificate authority will not issue certificates for a bare IP address.
My web server is (include version): Not available
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 11 Bullseye
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Not available
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I don't know
Am very new to all this so sorry in advanced if I don't know what you might be explaining.
What is the best way to approach this? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Hi @Toastyv, and welcome to the LE community forum
LE certs require a globally registered domain name.
That said, if you have Internet access, you can obtain an FQDN from a free domain.
And then use that to validate and obtain a cert via HTTP authentication (or use DNS authentication if your ISP blocks HTTP [TCP port 80]).
You might be able to run the music without a certificate
You might be able to create a self-signed cert
Thanks and really appreciate the speedy response!
Can you please point me in the right direction about creating self signed certificates? Do I enter this once it prompts me for a domain name? Thanks again!
I can't see the menu/screen prompt you are looking at.
And I really don't have the time right now - it's 2:48 am and I'm heading to bed
No problem, thanks for contributing! It's a good start at least.
Thanks 9peppe; do I have to input this code when it prompts for a domain? Again sorry if this is all common knowledge.
No, you either use Certbot and get a Let's Encrypt certificate,
OR you use that code to get a self signed certificate.
Ok thanks 9peppe, will give it a go.
