Problems creating certificates

I have followed the various procedures step for step on creating certificates and no matter what I either get:

  • “Network Error” if using the auto generation
  • “File does not contain valid private key” if I self generate the certificates
  • Certbot generates a whole bunch of errors

I have been using the instructions on the GitHub page:

I also have an issue getting the Blynk server to autostart. I used crontab -e, but the Blynk server does not start and I end up having to use htop to even find it.

I like the Blynk server and app very much, but I can’t keep running the server with the built-in certificates if I want to use it outside the confines of my firewall. (Yes I modified my firewall rules to pass the proper ports through for auto generation).

Please help!
