    silly observation – step 10 instructs reader to open .conf file in “./sites-available/.” which screenshot shows .conf accessed from “./sites-enabled/.“.

    might throw someone, might not, great writeup!

    1. Step 3. Install Let’s encrypt on FreeBSD: Is it Step2?. Because there is duplicate of Step 3.
    2. The command in order to update certbot utility and certbot required dependencies in number 7.

    # pkg install py27-certboot

    I think it should be

    # pkg install py27-certbot

    Add a cron job each night at 02:30 which runs certbot renew script:
    30 02 * * * certbot renew

    Hello, I can’t find the process of the certificate renewal for Lets’ Encrypt as you said earlier. How to do that?
