Let's encrypt certificate for offline servers with OVH DNS

Let's encrypt provide free and easy SSL certificates. Nevertheless it need to verify that you own the machine. In order to do that we usually use HTTP verification with the .well-known directory.

But sometime our servers are not reachable from the internet. Therefore the HTTP validation is not possible. Hopefully there is another way the acme challenge can be validated: DNS validation.

In this post we will see how we can generate Let's encrypt SSL certificate for offline machine with DNS validation for domains hosts by OVH.
