Steps to update LetsEncrypt on the Mac OS X


#1

Until they come up with an installer for OS X, these are the steps to update (upgrade) or re-install LetsEncrypt on the Mac OS X

Operating System, Mac OS X Mavericks.

1. Backup the current LetsEncrypt directory. If something goes wrong, you can just bring it back the way it was before.

[server:~] root# cp -R /Users/AdminUser/letsencrypt /Users/AdminUser/Downloads/install/LetsEncrypt/backup/12-01-2015

2. The installer will not install or replace the directory, so Delete the current LetsEncrypt directory on your AdminUser profile. So, (as root);`

[server:~] root# rm -R /Users/AdminUser/letsencrypt

3. Now, with the AdminUser root directory clear, Run the installer (as Root)

[server:~] root# git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt

Ps: This have been tested on my Mac and is working just fine.
