Wildcard cert via acme.sh

New standard for single-tenant, multi-vdir sites: configure nginx as outer server with paths for each service; run the services as separate vdirs with whatever server they ship with; let nginx terminate the SSL sessions for all of the vdirs and run the service in HTTP. This is easier if you use a single wildcard cert for the domain.
