nginx Restart Issue after Cert-Update (Letsencrypt)

Hi Maxim,

the script consists of:
- Letsencrypt job (certbot renew) - works fine, certs are being updated
- nginx restart
- nginx stop
- nginx start

but even with those three commands the new certs aren't visible
Only cure so far log in to the server, and issue a restart manually.

The nginx logs don't show any messages - I'm increasing to notice for now.

this is the script

#Daily check for new certs
# Get certs
certbot renew
# Restart NGINX Instances
service nginx restart
service nginx stop
service nginx start
