sudo certbot certonly --manual --preferred-challenges dns -d saidit.net -d www.saidit.net -d m.saidit.net -d oauth.saidit.net

I just can't seem to get this right. After installing certbot, and running the long command quoted above, and entering 4 TXT files at my domain registrar, I get these errors: https://pastebin.com/HHcVnJB9

You've gotta use your own domain, not SaidIt.net ! You will need to update those DNS records when you try again.

Hahahaha nope. I've had much more difficult support scenarios. It's a tricky platform.

YAY! The long command was a success. I got this:

However when I test the site at SSL Lab, I get these errors: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=portcity.online&hideResults=on#whyNotTrusted

Sweet, progress. Make sure your nginx SSL paths are correct and restart nginx. Should not print errors.
