    Odoo 15 on CentOS 8 Configure Nginx Proxy (With SSL) – Recommended

    If your server has a public IP, you can create a DNS A record for your domain to point to Odoo Server and request for free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate.

    Install Nginx on CentOS 8 Server.

    Step 1:- sudo yum -y install nginx
    Step 2:- sudo systemctl enable --now nginx

    Install certbot tool.

    sudo yum -y install epel-release wget
    sudo yum -y install certbot

    Stop Nginx service.

    sudo systemctl stop nginx

    Get Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates for your domain.

    export DOMAIN="erpcall.com"
    export EMAIL="erpcall@gmail.com"
    sudo certbot certonly --standalone -d ${DOMAIN} --preferred-challenges http --agree-tos -n -m ${EMAIL} --keep-until-expiring

    The path to certificate files is shown in the “IMPORTANT NOTES” section.

    Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:
    Your key file has been saved at:
    Your cert will expire on 2021-01-09. To obtain a new or tweaked
    version of this certificate in the future, simply run certbot-auto
    again. To non-interactively renew all of your certificates, run
    "certbot-auto renew"
    Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
    configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
    secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
    also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
    making regular backups of this folder is ideal.
    If you like Certbot, please consider supporting our work by:
    Donating to ISRG / Let's Encrypt: https://letsencrypt.org/donate
    Donating to EFF: https://eff.org/donate-le

    Create cron for certificate renewal.

    sudo crontab -e
    15 3 * * * /usr/bin/certbot renew --pre-hook "systemctl stop nginx" --post-hook "systemctl start nginx"

    Create Nginx configuration file.

    sudo vim /etc/nginx/conf.d/odoo.conf

    Paste below into the file and modify it to suit your environment.

    Validate your Nginx configurations.

    sudo nginx -t
    nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok
    nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful

    Restart Nginx.

    $ sudo systemctl restart nginx
