Cron script to renew Let's Encrypt certs using the official client
#!/bin/bash
# This is free and unencumbered software released into the public domain.
#
# This script is designed to be run daily by cron. Please run it with randomness in its timing to
# avoid load spikes at Let's Encrypt. One example, running between midnight at 2 AM, would be:
#
# 0 0 * * * sleep $[(RANDOM % 115)+5]m ; /usr/sbin/letsencrypt-renew.sh
#
# If you aren't using Nginx, adjust the startServer and stopServer methods to suit. Also, you could
# use the webroot method.
