DNS Api on Ubuntu 16.04 does does dns server matter?


#1

I am looking at using a wildcard ssl on my wordpress multisite installation. It is on a digital ocean/serverpilot server using Ubuntu 16.04 on apache/nginx.

Do I need to obtain and install the api separately? What is the syntax for using it?


#2

I’m not quite sure what you mean. Which API? And how would you “install” an “API”? Could you please elaborate?


#3

Well, I need to enable letsencrypt to access my DNS server to use wildcard SSL. Yes? And afaics I need a specific api for my dns server (say 123-reg, or Cloudflare). I have seen elsewhere here talk of a DNS API plugin which sounds to me like ti already included in certbot or it requires installation?
Or perhaps to fathom my ignorance… wildcard ssl for wordpress multisite - what do I need and how do I do it?

have a look at this guide:

essentially yes - you should have a plugin for your DNS provider. Certbot has a range of DNS providers it supports

It’s based on DNS Lexicon library.

That was a custom plugin, right? I don’t think the official plugins are all Lexicon based.


#6

think you are right

looks like they are using native python libraries for each provider :smiley:
