goeldi/certbot — version 0.1.1 Jun 8th 2020


This module installs certbot via the pip command in a virtualenv.

  1. Description
  2. Setup - The basics of getting started with certbot


After some trouble in renewing Letsencrypt certificates even with current linux distributions (e.g. CentOS 6 and RHEL 6), I realized, that using virtualenvs is the way to go. Even the all-instructions site on did not work anymore on certain systems.

So this way, everything can depend on a current python version (only 3.6 does work, even 3.5 does no more work on certain systems).

This module has only one dependency: puppet/python.


This module looks at your os family (Redhat or Debian) and the major release (e.g. 7 or 8 for Redhat and 18.04 or 20.04 for Ubuntu) and install the necessary packages for an installation of virtualenv in the /opt/certbotenv directory. If needed, libauges0 and augeas-lenses are installed as an Ubuntu dependency.

Setup Requirements

This module depends on puppet/python. Perhaps it will install it along with itself.
