Ensure that your version of snapd is up to date

sudo snap install core; sudo snap refresh core

Install Certbot

sudo snap install --classic certbot

Prepare the Certbot command

sudo ln -s /snap/bin/certbot /usr/bin/certbot

Choose how you'd like to run 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 certificate

If 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
