Need an explainer for ssl cert on spaces (one that won't make my head hurt).
I am baffled about how to create an ssl cert on one of my servers but use it on the subdomain for spaces. If I create a DNS entry for images.mydomain.com so Certbot can find it and issue an SSL cert. By definition, I am defining that my server’s IP is responsible to respond for that URL. How can I then copy that cert to the Spaces API and expect that it will now be responding for that subdomain? Would I not need to change my DNS to have a CNAME for the subdomain to point to CDN URL? If I do that how will I be able to then have Certbot find the original server to update my ssl cert after 90 days. I am befuddled. I anyone can explain this to me I would greatly appreciate it.
