I just downloaded the let’s encrypt client (https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt).
I moved it to my webhost and the folder appears as letsencrypt-master.
The folder is under the home directory on my web host/server.
I just tried this: https://letsencrypt.readthedocs.org/en/latest/intro.html
code: ./letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone --email firstname.lastname@example.org -d thing.com -d www.thing.com -d otherthing.net (I replaced everything with our site).
and I am getting this error:
updating letsencrypt and virtual environment dependencies…Command “python setup.py egg_info” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-Tqwq7A/cffi
