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.

  • 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/ -d -d

    @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 :-)

    i-MSCP 1.5.3 | Ubuntu 18.04

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

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

    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.

  • 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 you were able to get a certificate for and

    If you have registered you were able to get a certificate for and

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

    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. :)
