Starting Nginx-LE

If you are using the Nginx-LE cli tools then before starting Nginx-LE you must first run nginx-le config.
If you are not using the Nginx-LE cli tools then follow the standard docker, docker-compose processes.
To start the Nginx-LE container run:
1
nginx-le start
Copied!
However you start Nginx-LE, when you first start the Nginx-LE container it won't have a certificate.
If you have set AUTO_ACQUIRE=true then Nginx-Le will automatically acquire a certificate.
If you have set AUTO_ACQUIRE=false then when Nginx-LE detects that it doesn't have a valid certificate it will enter certificate acquisition mode.
In this mode it will display a default 'Certificate Acquisition Required' home page with instructions on obtaining a certificate.
You then need to run the nginx-le acquire command.
