Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so making regular backups of this folder is ideal. bbb-install: Let’s Encrypt SSL request for bbb.danishkada.com did not succeed - exiting root@dk-Precision-WorkStation-T3500:~#

Hello,

In order for you to get a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate you need to first own the domain name in question and second point the domain name A record to your server’s IP address.

As you are running this locally, you would either need to add a port mapping to your router so that you could use your home network public IP for your A record.

I would personally do one of these two things here:

  • If you want to run this locally, just use your virtual machine IP rather than a domain name
  • If you want to use a domain name with a Let’s Encrypt certificate, it would be best to deploy the app on a Droplet so that you don’t have to open ports to your local network:

Hope that this helps!
