Installing on GoDaddy


#1

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:gorgie.net

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):linux

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: GoDaddy

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):not sure

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):cpanel

I’m very new to let’s encrypt so have no idea what I’m doing!

I understand I can install on GoDaddy, but I can’t understand how to do it. The issue I do know how to install SSLs as I have done so previously.

Is there a step by step I can follow?

I’ve generated a CSR on my server, but don’t know where to put it. Usually is give it to the SSL provider…

Hi,

Please try this tutorial.
https://www.stevenz.science/obtain-certificate-with-lets-encrypt/

GoDaddy also have it own guide describing the process. (Obtain certificate online and install it on server)
https://www.godaddy.com/help/install-a-lets-encrypt-certificate-on-your-cpanel-hosting-account-28023

If you are familiar with cPanel command line, you could also try to use acme.sh to request, obtain and install the certificate automatically.

Thank you

Hi, thanks for your response and excellent help. I’ve been through all the steps provided on the zerossl site, using your tutorial. Everything seemed easy to follow and seemed to work well. The certificate was created and added to my server. It said the certificate was available on my domain, but when i visited my site, i got an invalid certificate error.

I have been through the process several times now and i get the same problem each time, so must be doing something wrong.

My website is https://www.gorgie.net

Thanks again for any help you can give.

When requesting the certificate, you have to list all of the names that should be included in it. www.gorgie.net and gorgie.net are separate names. Currently, your certificate only covers gorgie.net and not www.gorgie.net.

My domain is: frescohealth.com

I ran this command: I opened a terminal and started using Lets Encrypt. I got as far as the section explaining “certainly” and “webroot”. I called GoDaddy and they will not help.

I copy/pasted sudo certbot certonly --webroot -w /var/www/example -d example.com -d www.example.com -w /var/www/thing -d thing.is -d m.thing.is

It produced this output: Results were “How would you like to authenticate with the ACME CA?” I entered 3 for webroot directory. Results “Authenticator webroot, Installer None”.
Performing the following challenges:

http-01 challenge for www.frescohealth.com

Input the webroot for www.frescohealth.com: (Enter ‘c’ to cancel):

My web server is (include version): GoDaddy

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Not sure

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: GoDaddy

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): not sure

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): cpanel. I’ve been in the panel a few times fumbling around…novice at best.

I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do next

Firstly, thanks all. My site is now working with the SSL installed.

Now, rdrg520, as I am also using GoDaddy, I suggest you use the tutorial on the first reply to this topic. It worked for me and I was a complete novice
