Letsencrypt dns validation for external dns

Hi all,

Not sure if this has been asked before, but I couldn’t find anything.
Is there a way to have the virtualmin letsencrypt module to use dns validation when you’re using an external dns server for which there is already a certbot plugin?

Specifically looking for digital ocean and Cloudflare dns servers.


I think you’d need to run certbot from the command line, and configure that integration yourself. It might just work in Virtualmin if you preconfigure the DNS validation plugin…I think when we use certbot we hand a lot of the heavy-lifting off to it, but I think the triggering of DNS validation probably doesn’t happen if we don’t manage DNS. So…it’s a maybe. I’ve never tested and have never used those services.

I wouldn’t rule out adding support in the future, but for now, it’s probably something you’ll need to do from the command line.
