    Can i iuusue letsencrypt ssl for our server hostname ??
    i tried but gave me following error

    acme.sh updated

    webhost.imaginewebstudio.com nginx vhost + pureftp virtual ftp user setup

    /usr/bin/nv -d webhost.imaginewebstudio.com -s ydle -u tI3x7570UDfMAQz
    Nginx Vhost Setup...

    Error: webhost.imaginewebstudio.com is already setup for server main hostname
    at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.conf
    It is important that main server hostname be setup correctly

    As per Getting Started Guide Step 1 centminmod.com/getstarted.html
    The server main hostname needs to be unique. So please setup
    the main server name vhost properly first as per Step 1 of guide.

    Aborting nginx vhost creation...

    Nginx 1.27.x
    MariaDB 10.x/11.4+
    The only thing that can mess up virtual.conf main host is if you install phpmyadmin.sh addon. Otherwise, you can manually setup main hostname outlined in Getting Started Guide step 1 with HTTPS using vhost generator at Generate Centmin Mod Nginx Vhost - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS

    type on domain fieldin main host name domain which has to have valid DNS A record pointing to server ip i.e. host.domain.com and check box that says Generate Self-Signed SSL / Letsencrypt SSL HTTPS Vhost (File ONLY) *

    Vhost type = basic and hit submit

    follow first 3 acme.sh commands only to get letsencrypt ssl cert but edit web root from
    /home/nginx/domains/host.domain.com/public to point to /usr/local/nginx/html and remove www. domain from -d

    enable letsencrypt in 123.09beta01 - 3 commands
    Code (Text):
    touch /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc
    echo "LETSENCRYPT_DETECT='y'" >> /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc
    /usr/local/src/centminmod/addons/acmetool.sh acmeupdate

    get letsencrypt ssl cert - 1 line cmd - webroot defined by -w /usr/local/nginx/html
    Code (Text):
    /root/.acme.sh/acme.sh --force --issue --days 60 -d host.domain.com -w /usr/local/nginx/html -k 2048 --useragent centminmod-centos-acmesh-webroot --log /root/centminlogs/acmetool.sh-debug-log-host.domain.com.log --log-level 2

    install letsencrypt ssl cert - 2 line cmds
    Code (Text):
    mkdir -p /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/host.domain.com
    /root/.acme.sh/acme.sh --installcert -d host.domain.com --certpath /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/host.domain.com/host.domain.com-acme.cer --keypath /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/host.domain.com/host.domain.com-acme.key --capath /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/host.domain.com/host.domain.com-acme.cer --reloadCmd /usr/bin/ngxreload --fullchainpath /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/host.domain.com/host.domain.com-fullchain-acme.key

    then make a copy of /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.conf as /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.ssl.conf
    Code (Text):
    cp -a /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.conf /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.ssl.conf

    now edit within /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.ssl.conf with ssl cert lines so looks like
    Code (Text):

      listen 443 ssl http2;

    restart nginx
    Code (Text):

    now you should be able to access both https and non-https hostname and then if all is working do a non-https to https 302 temp redirect

    If you do have phpmyadmin.sh installed phpmyadmin, you can probably try this to fix the conflict via these steps.

    1. Get the contents of /usr/local/nginx/conf/phpmyadmin_https.conf and place it in your above created
    /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.ssl.conf main hostname HTTPS nginx vhost within server{} context

    2. Backup locally copy of phpmyadmin.sh auto generated self-signed SSL cert HTTPS vhost at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/phpmyadmin_ssl.conf

    3. Then take the below following values contained within /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/phpmyadmin_ssl.conf and transpose them into your above created
    /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.ssl.conf main hostname HTTPS nginx vhost within server{} context
    Code (Text):
    keepalive_timeout 3000;
    client_body_buffer_size 256k;
    client_body_timeout 3000s;
    client_header_buffer_size 256k;
    ## how long a connection has to complete sending
    ## it's headers for request to be processed
    client_header_timeout 60s;
    client_max_body_size 512m;
    connection_pool_size 512;
    directio 512m;
    ignore_invalid_headers on;
    large_client_header_buffers 8 256k;

    4. Then remove /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/phpmyadmin_ssl.conf

    5. Test Nginx config & Restart Nginx & PHP-FPM
    Code (Text):
    nginx -t
