Let’s encrypt cert updates

Let’s encrypt is wonderful, but certificate are getting expired every 3 months. Since it’s a first time I need to renew them, I have done it manually. The tool authenticates you (by default) with special file created in the .well-know/acme-challenge directory of the root, so the blog engine should not interfere or rewrite anything and should not return it’s own 404 page. Historically my nginx.conf has lots of existing redirects and rules, I am too lazy to correct and simplify it, so simple

localtion ~ .well-known {
        allow all;
    }

does not work. And I am too lazy to figure out why it is so (bad for me). So the most simple way to renew certs for me is to switch to minimal config. Putting it here for the future reference.
