What is Certbot

Certbot is an easy-to-use automatic client that fetches and deploys SSL/TLS certificates for your webserver. Certbot was developed by EFF and others as a client for Let's Encrypt and was previously known as "the official Let’s Encrypt client" or "the Let’s Encrypt Python client." Certbot will also work with any other CAs that support the ACME protocol.

How to use this image

Start a Certbot instance with the Apache plugin

In it's simplest form, starting an instance is as easy as:

docker container run -it \
       --rm \
       --net host \
       -v /etc/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt \
       -v /var/lib/letsencrypt:/var/lib/letsencrypt \
       -v /var/www:/var/www \
       palobo/certbot -t install --apache -d DOMAIN
  • DOMAIN is the domain name to apply. For multiple domains use multiple -d flags.

Start a Certbot instance with the Webroot plugin

docker container run -it \
       --rm \
       -v /etc/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt \
       -v /var/www:/var/www \
       palobo/certbot -t certonly --webroot -w WEBROOT_PATH -d DOMAIN
  • WEBROOT_PATH is a public_html / webroot path. This can be specified multiple times to handle different domains; each domain will have the webroot path that preceded it and
  • DOMAIN is the domain name to apply. For multiple domains use multiple -d flags

Start a Certbot instance with the Standalone plugin

docker container run -it \
       --rm \
       -p 443:443 \
       -v /etc/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt \
       -v $(pwd)/log:/var/log/letsencrypt \
       palobo/certbot certonly --standalone \
       -t -m me@myemail.com -d my.domain.com

Access the Container

If for some reason you need to access the container to perform some troubleshooting or any other reason, you can do so by bypassing the entrypoint with:

docker container run -it \
                 --entrypoint /bin/sh
                 palobo/certbot
