How do I switch from a paid SSL to Let's Encrypt?


I am using paid SSL right now and expiring tomorrow. Will I automatically switch to this SSL if I install Let’s Encrypt?

I use Centos 7 and Apache.

Thank you.

Basically yes, so you need to set up certbot or according to their instructions.

Your apache config will currently be pointing to a couple of files for your existing certificate and when you have finished setting up certbot etc it will point to your new Let’s Encrypt certificate files. I think you usually need an apache restart to start using the new files.

Thank you for the help.

But I get mod_ssl error during installation. More precisely, mod_ssl cannot be found. How can I solve it?

No package mod_ssl available.
