Donations have nothing to do with your ability to get a cert. Have you looked at the Getting Started page (https://letsencrypt.org/getting-started/)?

Hi,

I found this with a Google search:

I don’t know if this is current information because it claims that Zpanel is no longer being developed and has been replaced by Sentora. (Is that true?) If so, maybe there are more up-to-date instructions for Sentora elsewhere.

It’s absolutely true that most of the instructions out there don’t really explain how to get certificates when using a control panel, both because many control panel users don’t have the necessary permissions to install a certificate from outside of the control panel, and because we hope that the various control panel implementers will add super-automated and convenient Let’s Encrypt support that won’t generally need any external documentation. This has been happening with some of the control panels, but not with all.

But indeed, for most control panels you would usually need there to be specific Let’s Encrypt support in the control panel, or at least a way to import an external-generated certificate. If you do have the latter (like “paste your certificate and private key here”), which some control panels do, you can also use something like

to generate a Let’s Encrypt certificate that you can then upload to the control panel. (I’m not familiar with Zpanel so I’m not positive whether that option would be applicable to you.)

hi @bluebrad

have a look at this documentaiton: http://docs.sentora.org/?node=102

Usually cloning the github repository is not as good as using the automate install method

> Automated Install

Install

Since it doesn’t seem like your operating system has a packaged version of Certbot, you should use our certbot-auto script to get a copy:

wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
chmod a+x certbot-auto

certbot-auto accepts the same flags as certbot; it installs all of its own dependencies and updates the client code automatically. So you can just run:

$ ./certbot-auto

before running the above I would also check python

run python and make sure you have at least python 2.7 installed
