Week 7 – More Server Fun w/ Nginx

Next, I followed DigitalOcean’s guide “How To Secure Nginx with Let’s Encrypt”.

The first issue I ran into was when I was trying to obtain an SSL certificate — I went back and realized I had to add another A DNS record with ‘www.biancasbread.com’ as I only had one directed to ‘biancasbread.com’.

Once I successfully retrieved a the certificate(s), unlike the tutorial it did not prompt me to select how I would like to configure the HTTPS settings … anyways I continued on to the next step and tested out my site going to https://www.biancasbread.com and lo and behold it worked!

Lastly, I verified that node.js was installed.
