Is the documentation here current?
I ask because in my up-to-date Arch Linux I have at least two different packages (one official and one in the AUR) to choose from, and I have a feeling (with April news of leaving beta status and renamed client certbot) that the letsencrypt official package was superceded by the certbot-git package in the AUR.
The eff docs above seem to indicate that I should be using letsencrypt, but letsencrypt does not co-exist with AUR package certbot-git, so I installed certbot-git (thinking it was more current). Yet with it, I can’t seem to do something simple like:
certbot certonly --standalone --test-cert -d example.com
For me, this fails with reports that there is a web server already running on port 80. But I’m not trying to generate a cert for this computer that I’m running certbot on; I’m trying to generate the private key, certificate, CSR, and CA for a server running in a hosting service that allows me to upload all four of those items.
- should I use certbot-git from AUR or official package letsencrypt?
- how do I go about accomplishing my subject goal (I’ll need to copy/paste the four listed items into my panel in my hosting service web page).
