Best file to edit for SSLProtocol and SSLCipherSuite?

Hi Everyone,

If we want to adjust the SSLProtocol and SSLCipherSuite of Let’s Encrypt Cert, is this the best file to make the changes? Or there are other files where we can make the changes safely?

Not exactly sure I get the what the disclaimer at the top means. Sounds like its not safe to make the edits on this file. Please advise.

Thanks in advanced!


My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.6
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS 7
The version of my client is : certbot 1.4.0


It IS safe to modify this file, so go ahead.

The disclaimer is warning you that by modifying the file yourself, you are taking responsibility for maintaining it in future. Certbot won’t modify it anymore, so it’s your job now.


Ahh. So its the same file that we will have to update ourselves in the future. Thank you so much _az!
