Hey, so I am on a Dreamhost shared server, and as you probably know, shared hosting users don’t have sudo privileges, at least I don’t. Is there a way to use the Let’s Encrypt without sudo? Before you mention it, I know that there is: https://github.com/diafygi/letsencrypt-nosudo
As the name implies, it doesn’t require sudo… but it does. Very deceptive. I know that this is a third party script, but is there a way to verify that you own the server even if you don’t have sudo privileges. I have seen CA’s have you create a file on the server that a bot reads the contents of to determine if you own the domain. Does Let’s Encrypt have something like that?
No matter how many times I beg, Dreamhost refuses to help me with this
In conclusion, is there a way to:
- Run Let’s Encrypt Auto without Sudo
- Run letsencrypt-nosudo without the LAST LITTLE SUDO COMMAND
- Verify that you own the domain by having a script read a file off of your server
Also, VPS or Dedicated Servers are no option
