I’m a novice regarding security certificates, and have only been using Amazon Web Services for a couple weeks. My company has an internal use only website which is on a godaddy server. I have FTP access, but no shell access to the old server.
I’m trying to migrate the website to AWS ec2 linux. I have the site sort of working without HTTPS, but I’m worried about logging and using it in it’s current state because the site has access through LDAP and MSSQL connections.
This website is actively used on the old godaddy server, so I can’t redirect the domain to the new site until I know it’s fully functional, but I want to make sure it’s secure before I keep working on it.
How would I go about getting HTTPS setup on the new server when I only have the public IP address currently?
Following that, would something need to change with the certificate once I get the domain name pointed over?
I tried using the ./certbot-auto command, but it gave me unauthorized error messages on the domains I entered, which are pointing to the old godaddy server still.
