I stole Sergio's headline here and I am just going to link to his blog :)...
Sergio wrote up a how-to on using a let's encrypt cert and installing it on OL using nginx in an Oracle Cloud instance created and deployed with Terraform.
That 's a lot of words right there but it should demonstrate a few things:
- All the extra packages we have been publishing of late in the Oracle Linux EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) mirror. (yes they're the same packages but they're built on Oracle Linux, the packages are signed by us and they're on the same yum repo so you don't have to install separate files to get to it.) This includes certbot etc.. that you need for this.
- The convenience of having terraform, terraform-provider-oci RPMs to easily get going without downloading anything elsewhere.
- Integration of Oracle Linux yum servers inside Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for fast and easy access with no external network traffic charges.
