Empty Nginx instance
Next one is nginx. You may ask why. That is reasonable question and the answer is simple. In next steps we will be using Certbot for acquiring certificates from Let’s Encrypt. To do so, we need to verify that we own the domain and one of the easiest ways to do so is to provide certain files via http. We can also run some funky maintenance website.
apt update apt install nginx
We should also enable traffic on ports used by nginx.
ufw allow 80/tcp ufw allow 443/tcp
