Does thttpd support let's encypt cert?

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): thttpd 2.29

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 9

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Certbot may not support it “natively”.
But you should be able to use certbot with --webroot -w /the/web/root
Yes, a bit “more” manual; but this only needs to be done once (just to get a cert).
Certbot cert renewals will reuse those settings automatically.

Anything that ends with full automation is a win in my book.

thttpd doesn’t support TLS (SSL) at all. So automatically, it doesn’t support Let’s Encrypt certs too.

There is however a fork of thttpd with TLS support added:

Another option would be to use a specific TLS proxy/termination application, such as Hitch.
