Okay I just edited the cron job to
1. stop nginx2. attempt to renew the letsencrypt cert3. start nginx again
It is NOT PRETTY but it WORKS and you know that's good enough when I have a furry con to run around!
@anthracite that sounds like what I've heard other people talk about doing
@anthracite "nginx -s reload" should do it gracefully.
@anthracite What would a prettier solution be?
@Rachel one that does not involve stopping nginx
But that would involve spending more time on it than I care to spend when I’m on vacation!
