There isn’t much information about the Apache plugin. I’m using Apache on Ubuntu 16.04 with multi-domain shared hosting and I keep all relevant data in a local database to generate Apache site config files from. I’ve read that certbot can do lots of funny tricks like HSTS and zero-config authentication. But I don’t believe any of this before somebody at least tries to explain to me how this is going to work. (After all I believe in physics, not magic.)
Where can I find that information, for both authentication and installation?
If it doesn’t exist, I must assume that certbot and my own scripts will overwrite each other’s changes frequently and I’d probably need to go the manual route with the webroot plugin and other required things (directory aliases) and move files and write config myself, including manual certificate expiry tracking for renewal.
