After installing NGINX 1.15 (built form source with pagespeed), I installed the certbot plugin. but not sure why, it reverted my server to NGINX 1.14!!!!!! why is that?

For the past year Certbot has gone through a lot of improvements and I fully trust it now with all of my production servers. It’s been working perfectly for me for the past year.

I would recommend just following the official DigitalOcean step by step guide on how to use Certbot here:


Hope that this helps!

In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Let's Encrypt to obtain a free SSL certificate and use it with Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04. We will also show you how to automatically renew your SSL certificate. If you're running a different web server, simply follow your web server's documentation to learn how to use the certificate with your setup.
