Sometimes better to get certificate manually.

After installing encrypt client try to do:

  2. cd /opt/letsencrypt
  3. sudo ./letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone 
    --agree-tos --redirect --duplicate --text 
    -d -d
  4. sudo service nginx start
  5. ll /etc/letsencrypt/live/
  6. If you want to renew cert just run
    ./letsencrypt-auto renew --force-renewal
