My web server is (include version):
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
Yes, through sudo
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
No… I interact with it via PuTTY
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or

VERY happy, I managed to obtain the cert, which was a nightmare finding access to my DNS records etc, but I got there…over the moon!
However, I only obtained the certs, rather than installed them, and now I am a bit lost as to how to install previously obtained certs? I have red the documentation about 15 times but am still lost. I hate asking for help unless I need it, but I’m hoping for some direction with this one… much appreciated.
Progress is being made though, starting to see the power in certbot/lets encrypt(though it can be a bit overwhelming to understand)…
