- The above command should return your instance’s IP address. Once that sorted you can generate Let’s Encrypt certificate by running the following command:
sudo certbot --nginx -d your_domain_name
- Certbot will automatically configure NGINX to use the new certificate. You can confirm that the configuration was successful by running the following command:
sudo nginx -t
- Restart NGINX to apply the new configuration with the following command:
sudo systemctl restart nginx
