Switching to a VPS from Shared Hosting and install LetsEncrypt SSL

I am moving from shared hosting to a Vultr VPS. I show steps to transfer a domain and basic VPS setup with serverpilot.

Serverpilot will handle keeping my VPS updated and secure. After the domain has been moved over, I go over setting up SSL certificate from LetsEncrypt so I don’t have upgrade to the $10 pay tier of ServerPilot.

Nice work, Maybe do a video on either using Googles Suite for a email service? or setting up your own email service?

I’m looking to switch from Shared to VPS as well – have you thought about adding vultr’s cPanel addon? It’s $15/extra/month and you must have at least the $10 VPS plan (min. 2GB RAM) to run cPanel. So having cPanel + VPS with vultr puts you at $25/month. Just wondering your thoughts?

Thanks for the info.
Have you transferred an existing WordPress website from Shared hosting to this VPS? I am in the process right now. If you have any pointers/steps based on your experience, that would be great!
I am going the manual way instead of serverpilot. Everything is set up right now (SQL, Nginx, PHP etc). Only the WordPress part is remaining. It seems I have to install a new WordPress before the import process.

Ran into the same roadblock when running “./certbot-auto certonly”. Turns out the file needs to be made executable (chmod +x). Hopes this helps.
