2018 wk.29: docker run certbot/dns-digitalocean
Published on 2018-07-20
I’m in the middle of migrating my home services from docker on NixOS
to a private Joyent Triton deployment.
While doing this my certificates expired. A few years ago I settled on
using Google’s acme client, but it has not been updated to Let’s

docker run -ti --rm \
-v /home/itorres/var/dockerdata/letsencrypt/var:/var/lib/letsencrypt \
-v /home/itorres/var/dockerdata/letsencrypt/etc:/etc/letsencrypt \
certbot/dns-digitalocean certonly --dns-digitalocean \
--dns-digitalocean-credentials /etc/letsencrypt/secrets/do.ini \
-d "itorres.net" -d "*.itorres.net"
I will definitely donate to EFF for this.

weekend here. And when I say walk I mean it: East Side (5 miles) on

Thirteen years ago I moved to Catalonia.
Since then and in no particular order I: met Sara, became a parent of
three kids, ran over a series of jobs and professional projects, moved
two times inside Barcelona and a last one to Sallent, learnt Catalan,
improved my English a lot, started telecommuting, founded
guifibages, a non profit internet provider over Guifi, and
started cooperating with local far-left collectives. Among many
Not bad for thirteen years. Let’s see what the years until 2030 yield.
