Next up, on the quest from Alma Linux VPS to using SSL-encrypted Cockpit sessions, is snapd. Yeah, so it was Apache, now snapd and then certbot.
Visit the snapd install instructions, Alma is the first OS in the list. Next, gotta use the EPEL repo
sudo dnf install epel-release sudo dnf upgrade
Those should go pretty quick – less than 17mb of stuff as of this writing. Then install and enable snapd
sudo dnf install snapd sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
That took a couple minutes – my EPEL connection was notably slower, but still no big deal.
This is symbolic link magic is in their instructions to enable “classic” snap. I think Certbot, as of this writing, uses classic snap
sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
