Nginx-LE

Nginx-LE provides a docker container and tools to create an Nginx web server that automatically acquires and renews HTTPS certificates.
Nginx-LE uses the LetsEncrypt CLi tool, Certbot, to acquire and renew certificates.
Nginx-LE ships as a Docker image which you can use with Docker or Docker Compose.
You can optionally use Nginx-LE CLi tooling which allows you to configure and build Nginx-LE containers in a couple of seconds.
Nginx-LE is suitable for production systems, internal infrastructure and even when a developer needs a web server on their local machine.
This documentation tends to use the terms LetsEncrypt and Certbot somewhat interchangeably.

Nginx-LE supports both public-facing web servers and private (internal) web servers such as those used by individual developers.
The key advantages of Nginx-LE are:
  • automatic certificate acquisition and renewal
  • no down time when renewing certificates
  • for Public facing servers, works with any DNS server
  • support for wildcard certificates
  • makes it easy for a developer to acquire a live certificate.

Automatic renewal

Nginx-LE supports the automatic renewal of both Public and Private Web Servers.

No downtime.

Nginx-LE is able to renew a certificate WITHOUT taking your web server offline.
Nginx-LE leaves your web server fully operational whilst it acquires or renews a certificate. After acquiring or renewing a certificate Nginx-LE performs an Nginx reload command which is close to instantaneous.
