Hello DOies,

Following the link below to set up auto renew certificate.


At step 4 when I execute the command

> certbot-auto renew

command not found.

Can someone direct me from where the command should be executed. I am executing from home directory.

Thank you,

First you have to install certbot :

Step 1 in https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-14-04

Then you can go back to Step 4 and use certbot-auto renew

In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Let's Encrypt to obtain a free SSL certificate and use it with Nginx on Ubuntu 14.04. We will also show you how to automatically renew your SSL certificate. If you're running a different web server, simply follow your web server's documentation to learn how to use the certificate with your setup.
