Disabe letsencrypt failed and Run discourse-setup had some not normal alert

I try to reconfig about ssl certificate, want to disable letsencrypt free certificate.
Because I have a purchase certificate, I found some operations through Google.

Modify app.yml directly and confirm key & cer in the /var/discourse/shared/standalone/ssl/
and file name are consistent with config file, then rebuild I get the result is failed still use letsencrypt cer

nginx have some error log :

Have confirm file in the directory

root@discourse-test:/var/discourse/shared/standalone/ssl# ls -al ssl.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7868 Sep 25 16:24 ssl.cer
-rw------- 1 root root 1675 Sep 25 16:24 ssl.key

And found some discussion in following url :

Removing Let’s Encrypt from installation choice

When I run ./discourse-setup I get the alert :

./discourse-setup: line 471: [: 1234567890123456: binary operator expected

Have any suggest to disable letsencrypt or resolve reconfig problem?

There are some topics about how to use your own certificate. You can try searching, but this niche be it Advanced Setup Only: Allowing SSL / HTTPS for your Discourse Docker setup

Something that stood out in your first couple of posts was

cannot load certificate "/shared/ssl/ssl.crt"

and
Have confirm file in the directory

root@discourse-test:/var/discourse/shared/standalone/ssl# ls -al ssl.*

Notice the difference after /shared/ part of the paths. Nginx was expecting the ssl.crt file to be in the shared/ssl/ folder. You found it in shared/standalone/. The file wasn’t in the path where nginx was looking for it.

@JimPas Thanks for your reply
I provide info the path not match. because one path is docker volume path other one is real server file path.

Advanced Setup Only: Allowing SSL / HTTPS for your Discourse Docker setup

volumes:
  - volume:
      host: /var/discourse/shared/standalone
      guest: /shared

seems not match, but in fact is same.
the first problem, I was resolve.
root case for me is I didn’t notice certificate format.
config is settings crt format, but I always use cer format file so nginx not success read certificate file.
