I want to setup ssl certificate to the linux server I use only n8n in.
I’m a bit confused,
Because I want to setup certbot and certbot is running on Apache and Apache is running on 80/443 port,
So Traefik running on the same ports too;
I don’t know how to handle Traefik and Apache at the same time to enable https working secure on my server.
How should I run a secure server with n8n on it?

If you are using Apache as a reverse proxy and want to handle the ssl there you can just remove traefik and configure Apache to pass the request on through mod_proxy (I think that is what it is called).
Can I handle ssl on traefik too? I couldn’t see any doc to do that

The config you have there is to handle ssl automatically through an acme / lets encrypt client.
Ooh I got it wrong, I thought I need to add a ssl certificate after I install docker-compose file.
Now it is working secured only with the docker-compose file of n8n and traefik in it.
I follow this steps on an Ubuntu Linux server for anyone to try later;
And a little bit visual on youtube about the setup;

We should probably make that a bit clearer, I have not seen the install docs for a while so I am not sure what we say but I will see if I can get that sorted.
It is actually pretty clear;
Maybe a warning can be add like “Dont try it with IP address, only try this with domain and subdomain”
Because I first try to do the setup only with the IP address and SSL didnt worked, afterwards I used the domain and subdomain and I setup again. Then it worked.
I hope my conclusion is true in this part.

Ha yeah that will do it, you can’t get SSL certs for IPs normally. Will add that as a note.
Is this SSL going to renew itself or should I do it once a year or something?

It is Lets Encrypt so the cert is only valid for 90 days but the acme client in Traefik will auto renew it. There is some information on what Traefik does here:
