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

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.
