I have classic (not cpanel) Linux deluxe hosting with GoDaddy (I know, I know), with several subdomains. I would like to use Let’s Encrypt for just one of the subdomains that is running a Simple Machines forum.
I’ve been reading instructions on how to install Encrypt and it’s all greek (geek?) to me. I’m not even sure I can use it in a subdomain.
Does anyone here know if that’s possible? If so, are there instructions on how to set all of this up for someone who really has very little technical skills or knowledge? I’ve gotten as far as turning on SSH for my hosting, downloaded something called openssh-7.2 but have no idea what to do with it or how to proceed from there. Again I’m not very technical, but I’m very good at following instructions.
I really would love to get Let’s Encrypt installed, it sounds perfect for what I need to protect logins, user names, etc. from prying eyes.
