I use Bitnami Ghost blog virtual machine image for hosting this blog on AWS.
While making it easy to set up, it created a number of things that required a bit of work to figure out. One of those was how to get an SSL cert from Let's Encrypt configured properly.
I have forgotten exactly how I did this but basically you just need to use the certbot-auto script but you need to run it inside the Binami "stack"
I am documenting here my certificate renewal steps so I can find them next time.
# open the bitnami console /opt/bitnami/use_ghost # now the rest of this you do in # the bitnami console # shut down the server sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh stop # renew the certs (note no sudo) /opt/certbot-auto renew # restart the server sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh start
The process for getting the cert in the first place is similar but follows the instructions in from Let's Encrypt.
