Generate SSL bundle

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: Ographix.com.au

I ran this command:
Hi there, my hosting provide has ask your support to generate the SSL bundle. As the create SSL via the back end. How can I get this generated?

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Small Orange

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):

ASO is one of those profit-driven webhosts who disable cPanel’s built-in AutoSSL feature, that would usually automatically issue and install free SSL certificates for all of your websites and domains. They would rather you pay $40/yr for a commercial certificate.

Unfortunately, for that reason, there’s not really any good solution to using Let’s Encrypt with your shared hosting service. You could try manually issuing Let’s Encrypt certificates for your domain with a tool like ZeroSSL (which you give you the bundle you need), but you would have to repeat the process every 60-90 days due to certificate expiration. It’s not a good solution.

Other choices include paying ASO (or another vendor) for a commercial certificate, or changing to one of many web hosts that provide free SSL.

Another approach, if you are technically minded and have SSH access to your cPanel account, would be to try to setup something like acme.sh: https://github.com/Neilpang/acme.sh/wiki/Simple-guide-to-add-TLS-cert-to-cpanel . But it’s not always possible, given the restrictions some hosts place on their cPanel services.
