Installing Let’s Encrypt Certificate – Apache – Debian 9

First you’ll need to install the Let’s Encrypt certbot

sudo apt-get install certbot

Now, we can create a certificate for all of the domains setup within Apache

sudo certbot --apache

Finally, let’s restart Apache!

sudo service apache2 reload

While trying to install the cert I had a few errors relating to “cert authority failed….”
This was overcome by running the following command instead of sudo certbot –apache

sudo certbot --authenticator webroot --installer apache
