There was thread not long ago where I described in detail how I installed
it. Look for that if nothing else helps. The only thing I would add to
that thread is: you have to reload apache (as if you are restarting it) to
load updated certificate, which you can do in the cron job you set for
updating certs; add --post-hook like below:

/usr/local/bin/certbot renew --quiet --post-hook
"/usr/local/sbin/apachectl graceful"
