How exactly to use

NginxLet's Encrypt

I’m learning Docker, NGINX and Letsencrypt working on a website, trtying to do a DNS challenge:

While searching the internet I stumbled across this DO

That seems to config all the best parameters for a Docker website on DO.

What I don’t get are the needed steps to get the all thing running :
1 Should I install NGINX docker, Letsencrypt docker and certbot docker and THE copy the files from on the given location ?
2 What are the DNS parameters I should set on DO and on OVH (where my domain is registered) ?

Thank you for contributinG to my learning curve

Hello, @lucamoiana

  1. Yes that is correct, Nginx and certbot need to be installed before you follow the steps listed on

  2. As for the DNS changes, in order to point your domain name to digital ocean, you need to point/set the A record of your domain name to the IP address of your droplet/server with Digital Ocean

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
