Hi! I just deployed a Ghost one-click-app droplet on Digital Ocean, and got a Let’s Encrypt cert from DNSimple. Which cert files should I download (.crt, .key, .pem, _bundle.pem) and where should I put them after sshing into the server?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @digitalvapor

Don’t use the certificate you got from DNSimple, just create a new one directly on the server, so you also can setup the auto-renewal.

You can use this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-16-04

But I think your Nginx file might be something different than /etc/nginx/sites-available/default, since you’re using the one-click, so check the folder /etc/nginx/sites-available/ for other configuration files.
