Let's Encrypt for nginx in docker container (not compose)

Hi guys

I read this:

Can you give me some tips on how to do this when nginx is run in docker container? All tutorials out there seems to do this with nginx not running in container or with docker compose. Im not using compose right now.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
