Remove certbot-auto and any Certbot OS packages
If you have any Certbot packages installed using an OS package manager like apt, dnf, or yum, you should remove them before installing the Certbot snap to ensure that when you run the command certbot the snap is used rather than the installation from your OS package manager. The exact command to do this depends on your OS, but common examples are sudo apt-get remove certbot,
sudo dnf remove certbot, or sudo yum remove certbot.
If you previously used Certbot through the certbot-auto script, you should also remove its installation by following the instructions here.
Install CertbotRun this command on the command line on the machine to install Certbot.
sudo snap install --classic certbot
Prepare the Certbot commandExecute the following instruction on the command line on the machine to ensure that the certbot command can be run.sudo
ln -s /snap/bin/certbot /usr/bin/certbot

Either get and install your certificates…Run this command to get a certificate and have Certbot edit your Nginx configuration automatically to serve it, turning on HTTPS access in a single step.
sudo certbot --nginx
Or, just get a certificateIf 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
Test automatic renewalThe Certbot packages on your system come with a cron job or systemd timer that will renew your certificates automatically before they expire. You will not need to run Certbot again, unless you change your configuration. You can test automatic renewal for your certificates by running this command:
sudo certbot renew --dry-run
The command to renew certbot is installed in one of the following locations:
- systemctl list-timers
