Hi! I'm looking for a remote work.
If you are looking for a Senior Software Engineer or Solution Architect, let me know.

Generating a RSA private key

writing new private key to 'acervera.key'
-----
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
-----
Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:IE
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:Cork
Locality Name (eg, city) []:Whitegate
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Angel Cervera Claudio
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:Web
Common Name (e.g. server FQDN or YOUR name) []:www.acervera.com
Email Address []:info@acervera.com

Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
to be sent with your certificate request
A challenge password []:
An optional company name []:

Step 2: Issue the certificate (namecheap)

  1. Activate Certificated Order Activate Certificated Order
  2. Enter CSR and domain Enter CSR and domain
  3. Select type of server Select type of server
  4. Confirm domain owner method Confirm domain owner method
  5. Review and submit Review and submit
  6. Wait Wait
  7. After wait for the validation, download the certificate After wait for the validation, download the certificate

Step 3: Prepare certificate

Following the steps in the namecheap site

  1. Uncompress the bundle downloaded from the previous section.

    1
    2
    apt install unzip
    unzip www_acervera_com.zip
  2. Combine CRT and CA certificates.

    1
    cat www_acervera_com.crt www_acervera_com.ca-bundle >> www_acervera_com_chain.crt

    There is a small problem with this approach. www_acervera_com.crt does not contain the EOL at the end of the file, so www_acervera_com_chain.crt is not going to have a valid format throwing the error (SSL: error:0906D066:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:bad end line) To fix it, replace:

    1
    -----END CERTIFICATE----------BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

    with

    1
    2
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
  3. Readable only be the root.

    1
    chmod 400 www_acervera_com*

Step 4. Update NGINX config

From the documentation in dockerhub The version used in my case is 1.13.12 To check it in the current running server:

1
2
3
# docker exec -it  /bin/bash
# nginx -v
nginx version: nginx/1.13.12

Update the config file to add the SSL server

server {

ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/certs/www_acervera_com_chain.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/certs/acervera.key;

server_name acervera.com *.acervera.com;

location / {
proxy_pass http://upstream-acervera;
proxy_redirect off;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $server_name;
}
}

server {
listen 80;
server_name acervera.com *.acervera.com;

return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;
}

And Start docker
