  1. First install the plugin:

  2. Configure it with your Credentials:

    sudo vim /etc/letsencrypt/regru.ini
  3. Make sure the file is only readable by root! Otherwise all your domains might be in danger:

Renewals will automatically be performed using the same authenticator and credentials by certbot.
