Installing Certbot on CentOS 6, Plesk 11.5


#1

Hi,

I am running Plesk 11.5.30 on CentOS 6.6; however, I don’t want to upgrade to Plesk 12.5 yet, hence cannot use the Plesk extension for LetsEncrypt. [ https://www.plesk.com/blog/lets-encrypt-plesk ]

Can I still safely install and use Certbot?

I ran ./certbot-auto, and it is poised to install, but I see it wants to install/upgrade a lot of packages:

I don’t want to break Plesk or any of the services, so I’m concerned about all these installations and updates.

Any help much appreciated.

thanks

I used the bash client instead, GetSSL, https://github.com/srvrco/getssl

Very easy – once the certificate was created, I just copied and pasted into a new cert in Plesk. It’s working.
