So, I’ve tried solving these problems on my own, and it’s just over my head. My situation is as follows:
-Hosting at home (eeePC)
-ISP blocks incoming port 80
What I want to do:
-obtain a letsencrypt cert
--in order to run certain apps that don't like self-signed certs --less friction for family and friends when sharing nextcloud links
What I’ve done/tried:
-Tried setting up ‘algo’ VPN on a free amazon ec2 instance, thinking I could use it to proxy? my site. I worked on it for two days, and couldn’t get it working.
-Bought a new domain name from ionos
-Made an account on duckdns
-Spent a day or two trying to map new domain to my Yunohost server… couldn’t get it working.
I am feeling pretty frustrated by the whole situation, and honestly pretty down on myself at this point. I’ve been running Yunohost for 2 or 3 years now, and really enjoying it. I’m looking to do a couple new things now, and can’t figure it out… even though I feel like it shouldn’t be so hard
I’m not a guy with a lot of money, and I really would rather be able to do this myself, but I just can’t get my mind around the solutions, and also I don’t want to break my server that I depend on! If you can help me, or recommend someone who can, let me know!
I am in the US (Pacific timezone).
