I'm just using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and the EPEL release ver 8 not released yet. So I choose manual installation and following this step:

https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/pip-nginx

And I always getting this Error

Is Anyone tried Certbot with RHEL 8 ?

  • Yes, i tried, and my solution is to remain on RHEL 7 until EPEL certbot is available. – Michael Hampton Jul 13 at 16:42
  • @MichaelHampton I just successfully installed using certbot-auto manual installation, it doesn't need EPEL see the bottom is my solution, Why Stay RHEL 7 if RHEL 8 has big improvement & just dealing with IBM one of the most expensive & versatility OS ? – haidarvm Jul 14 at 2:24
  • Thanks @haidarvm, Your solution works on RHEL 8. However, my personal opinion is that I would not prefer this approach on production setup. RHEL 8 puts lot more emphasis on Python 3 (I am using Ansible and some of my script tested on RHEL 7 started failing). I also noticed that when I ran "certbot-auto", it installed lot many packages, including Gcc which I would not prefer on a production server from hardening perspective. – Kishan Parekh Aug 7 at 8:47

Certbot is fully supported under RHEL/CentOS 8 now. Just run

wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
chmod +x certbot-auto

For apache

./certbot-auto --apache

For nginx

./certbot-auto --nginx

It installed on my CentOS 8 minimal installation:

Package openssl-1:1.1.1-8.el8.x86_64 is already installed.
Package ca-certificates-2018.2.24-6.el8.noarch is already installed.

I'm getting help from Brad Warren member of certbot: https://github.com/certbot/certbot/issues/7241

He help me just a simple single command by installing :

$ sudo dnf install python3-virtualenv

And Everything runs fine and smooth, here's the result :

sudo /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto --nginx --verbose --debug
