Does meet.myit-solutions.net use the same root in the nginx configuration as myit-solutions.net? Or does it use a different directory?


Thanks for replying,
I am new to nginx so here is how it is configured
root in the default is root /usr/share/nginx/html;
root in the bigbluebutton is /var/www/bigbluebutton-default;

before trying to configure ssl I could type in http://meet.myit-solutions.net and the bigbluebutton page would work.
When trying to get the letsencrypt certificate It will produce one for myit-solutions.net but not meet.myit-solutions.net
I hope that makes sense!..


You should also provide certbot with that webroot path for the corresponding hostname. So it would be:

certbot-auto certonly -a webroot --webroot-path=/usr/share/nginx/html -d myit-solutions.net -w /var/www/bigbluebutton-default -d meet.myit-solutions.net

(-w is a short version of --webroot-path.)


Thank you so much everything is working now.

I appreciate all your help… thanks a Million.
