Free SSL certificates through Let's Encrypt

  • When letsencrypt is stable and released, we will check the functionality and decide whether it makes sense or not to create a plugin.
    But it will take some time and for sure not for the i-MSCP 1.2.x version.

    Patched i-MSCP 1.5.4 on Debian Stretch | Apache 2.4.54 | Nginx 1.23.0 | OpenSSL 1.1.1 | php 7.0 - 8.1 | Dovecot 2.3.17.1 | Bind 9.11.5 | Postfix 3.1.15 | MariaDB 10.1.48 | ProFTPD 1.3.5b | Rspamd 2.7 | ClamAV 0.103.6 | Roundcube 1.5.3 | CrowdSec 1.4.0

  • Yesterday I got my second invite for three additional domains and all went fine.
    And then I used the following command to created my certificates:


    letsencrypt-auto certonly --agree-dev-preview --agree-tos --renew-by-default -a webroot --webroot-path /var/www/virtual/domain.com/htdocs/ -d domain.com -d www.domain.com

    @mrpink, thanks so much for the tip with cli.ini and the following line of code in order to add another certificate. Worked like a charme :-)

  • @mrpink do you know how to create a certificate for subdomains? I am wondering if I could use

    Code
    1. letsencrypt-auto certonly --agree-dev-preview --agree-tos --renew-by-default -a webroot --webroot-path /var/www/virtual/subdomain/htdocs/ -d subdomain.domain.com


    or do I need to apply for subdomains separately?

  • Let's Encrypt ist still in beta status and you could not get an official certificate for any other subdomain then www.


    On 3 December @ 6 PM GMT they want to go officially online for public beta usage. So you have to wait a little bit.

    Patched i-MSCP 1.5.4 on Debian Stretch | Apache 2.4.54 | Nginx 1.23.0 | OpenSSL 1.1.1 | php 7.0 - 8.1 | Dovecot 2.3.17.1 | Bind 9.11.5 | Postfix 3.1.15 | MariaDB 10.1.48 | ProFTPD 1.3.5b | Rspamd 2.7 | ClamAV 0.103.6 | Roundcube 1.5.3 | CrowdSec 1.4.0

  • It was actually pretty easy to get a domain during the closed beta. You only had to fill in a google doc. and a few days later you got access / information how to setup the letsencrypt.


    Also they got a automated plugin for debian. Didn't test it yet.

  • Here a more accurate explanation. During the closed beta you were able to register a domain on a google doc.


    If you have registered example.com you were able to get a certificate for example.com and www.example.com


    If you have registered sub.example.com you were able to get a certificate for sub.example.com and www.sub.example.com


    => No additional subdomains for example.com or sub.example.com, but you were able to register another subdomain e.g test.example.com on the google doc site and then the same -> certificate for test.example.com and www.test.example.com



    So please wait until tomorrow evening and you are able to get a certificate for whatever domain and subdomain you want.
    Assuming that the servers are not overloaded for the first hours after public beta. :)
