During recent years, I've wanted to expand my skill set and perform many tasks myself. This is the reason I got into "making", so I could do additional technical things outside my usual day to day job. Things I don't usually do.

Design is one of those things. I love Design.

User Experience is one of those things. I love UX.

DevOps is one of those things. I hate DevOps.

DevOps is particularly bad, because - maybe this is just for me, but - it's one of those things where I just don't know what I'm doing, so I google it, hack it together and it either works or it doesn't work.

Unfortunately with DevOps, "it doesn't work" usually means you've taken your whole server down, which is what happened in my case. Fortunately, it's my personal server, so only my personal apps are down. Unfortunately again, because it's my personal server, it's hosting several small apps - which means every single one of them are currently down.

Any second now I'm going to get a million emails saying all of these apps are down. I KNOW STATUS CAKE. I KNOW.

    @craigpetterson try to use some tools ? for example I use Laravel forge to deploy PHP server, lots of things can be configured through the services + little of Linux skill to handle my devops part of work.

      @knight I like knowing how things work haha! I did it myself for my own projects. It's very simple really :) You can find everything you need online and Digital Ocean (the server provider I use) has lots of great guides on how to set certain things up.

      It turned out to be a simple error, but it seemed like a catch-22 for me. I had already included the ssl_certificate location in my nginx config and it was trying to use that even that it hadn't been created by the certbot task yet! I removed those 2 lines and certbot did it's thing and sorted it out.

      I'm back!
