LetsEncrypt/Certbot on two separate droplets for the same domain

Hi there,

I’m in bit of a tricky situation and trying to understand how to fix it. (I’m not a system admin, I’m a novice, so please bear with me)

I have a droplet for the main domain. We are now expanding and I need to add a subdomain. I’ve created a new droplet and I’ve been working on the website. We are nearing ready to launch however the SSL and redirection is confusing. However, I’m at a loss on how to get certbot to cover SSL on the new subdomain as it’s a new IP address.

The main droplet is Ubuntu Wordpress 18.04. The second droplet is Ubuntu litespeed Wordpress.

Am I going down a rabbit hole on this?

Many thanks Steve

Hi @StevePA,

Just do a regular SSL setup on the OpenLiteSpeed server should work. You can set it up via the prompt setup script,

Let us know if it works.
