Title: Integration of let's encrypt
Post by: APleger on March 14, 2018, 07:03:26 PM
Hi!

is there any integration for "let's encrypt" to automatically use certificates?

Kind regards
Andreas

mod_md, it automates the process of obtaining the certificate so you do not have to manually.

Your Apache must be able to get requests on port 80.
I can't tell you too much because my ISP blocks port 80 so I can not use this module so I can't help with configuring it.
The documentation for it is at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_md.html

Edit: Looks like there may be a problem with it.

Hi Gregg, so there's no way to use this module if the ISP is blocking the port 80? That's a bummer. I'm in the same boat as you. Can you call the ISP and ask for them to unblock it or something?

You can usually but in my case they will tell me I have to get a business package for a lot more $$$.

So since I currently have to manually do it via TXT records in DNS anyway, I'm now getting wildcard cert (now that they're available) which you must do manually via DNS. My first wildcard expires mid June.
