[SOLVED] Installing certbot-nginx

Hi everyone,

I would to get/generate an SSL (TLS) certificate for a website.

I would like to use Let'sEncrypt and I found this guide that target Devuan smile -->

https://certbot.eff.org/instructions?ws … uanbeowulf

But when I try

sudo apt update
sudo apt install certbot certbot-nginx

I get

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package certbot-nginx

I don't know if certbot-nginx is required as I will most probably go with the option:
just get a certificate from this guide

certbot.eff.org wrote:

Or, just get a certificate

If you're feeling more conservative and would like to make the changes to your nginx configuration by hand, run this command.

sudo certbot certonly --nginx

So is certbot-nginx required ? Did you already installed a Let's encrypt certificate on your Devuan ?

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] Installing certbot-nginx

FYI,

I tried to install just the certbot package, but it seem to be required for the next step -->
certbot certonly --nginx

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Could not choose appropriate plugin: The requested nginx plugin does not appear to be installed
