SLE: installing certbot and its NGINX plugin

openSUSE Tumbleweed

Installing certbot and its NGINX plugin on openSUSE Tumbleweed was just straightforward:

zypper addrepo
zypper refresh
zypper install certbot

Then, install python36-certbot-nginx and finally run:

sudo certbot --nginx

SLE 15 SP2

But I’m trying to do the same on SLE 15 SP2. I tried:

What am I missing? Is there a convenient way to install certbot and its NGINX plugin by the command line on SLE 15 SP2?

This is not the SLE forum. You maybe better off at

Even better to head to (new location)…

Or you can:

Enable SLE Backports on your SLE15SP2:
**sudo SUSEConnect -p PackageHub/15.2/x86_64
Refresh repos:
**zypper ref
Install python3 certbot and nginx package:
zypper install python3-certbot python3-certbot-nginx

Yup that too :wink:

It solved my problem! :slight_smile: How can I mark your post as answer?

Just by saying so, as you did above. :wink:
