I allowed a day to pass without revisiting any thoughts of certbot or my new server. ugh.
Today, SSH attempts then exposed how my new, bigger-battery upgrade had died because I haphazardly detached the old, newly discovered fancy power cable elbow attachment addition -and I'd slid the old/new fecal fossa Ubuntu Laptop back into its safe, secret, hidden place, along the wall on the only empty ledge-space by the side of the big bookshelf, shed-like, tool..
So wouldn't it be nifty if I could add <VirtualHost *:3000> to the gitxome.conf within the apache2/sites-available directory, directly, to be detected and presented by certbot's wizardly daring?
Ports other than 80 and 443 could be .. hmmm there was lots of information I'd read two days ago on this exciting site: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html#configuration-file -including a link to my DNS Host, https://certbot-dns-cloudflare.readthedocs.io/en/stable/ where I'd went as-far as to create an encrypted authorization key, pasting it [unsaved] into notepad++for safe keeping even after three reboots of my vindows10 verkbeast.
I fret that I'm pretty-much stuk'd with regard to adding any additional ports to-be translated through certbots specialized negotiating skills with the deep-subject of TSL, not to mention SSL technologies, causing all of the major web browsers threatening ominous warning feature -that dreaded, unbearable, "unlocked" lock icon to magically change into the beautiful, much sought-after, certificate of merit, safety-insight pleasure, fabulously bona-fide, smiling, securely locked, confirmation icon!
uh. (sorry about all the extra wordy glamour)..
A special shout-out to Let's Encrypt Engineer, Jacob Hoffman-Andrews, who promoted my status trust level! Truly, I'm merely an Artist with some big-dreams, striving to bring something amazing to-the-world, where some of the major hurdles on my sixty journey have been the technical distractions outside the scope of my psychedelic hypnosis experience. I call it #THIStm and I say, #GitXome! (but I need your help),
Thank you, all.
