Installing Nginx on CentOS 7 with Let’s Encrypt HTTPS certificates

First off, you need a CentOS instance. If you want to go the VPS route, I recommend Vultr. If you don’t have an account yet, I’d really appreciate if you could use my affiliate link when signing up 🙂 Once done, you also need an SSL certificate. Then you can use my script to do […]
