I’m running virtual web server on a shared hoster which supports certificates through the configuration panel. I’ve used the Let’s Encrypt client in manual mode to create the cert and was able to configure the server to enable https. Great!
Now, while the manual process works, it’s a bit tedious to create the challenge files and upload them to the web server. I would be interested to fully automate this process.
The provider specific configuration part is already solved (they provide a soap api for the web configuration panel), but with the Let’s Encrypt client I’m no sure what the best way would be to automate the creation and upload of the challenge files to our server.
Is is (already) possible to write a plugin for that? Or would the client and/or the manual plugin have to be altered to provide a mechanism for that?
