Lets Encrypt on Amazon Linux,

 So after switching some domain names around I wanted to add a Lets Encrypt SSL cert. to the blog here. Simple enough right? Log into the box, follow the instructions (https://coderwall.com/p/e7gzbq/https-with-certbot-for-nginx-on-amazon-linux) and that should be it? Nope, as alway an error occurred, when running the

certbot-auto certonly --standalone -d davidjeddy.com

 command. Turns out Amazon linux does NOT add `/usr/local/bin` to the $PATH. So I instead moved the binary to `/usr/sbin` and all was well with the world.

Couple minutes later I'm in the nginx config adding the cert, a quick restart and away we went into the great beyond of encrypted awesomeness.
