Let's Encrypt plugin on cPanel


#1

Hello Folks,

Can anyone help me in the matter of installing Lets Encrypt plugin on a cPanel server. The server is running licensed cPanel with multiple websites hosted on it.

Thanks,
Nouman

Hi,

Assuming you have a recent version of cpanel. log into the server as root ( ssh ) and simply run

/scripts/install_lets_encrypt_autossl_provider

Then you can go into WHM, and enable it for the domains you require ( Home >> SSL/TLS >> Manage AutoSSL )

For the cPanel documentation, see https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/The+Let's+Encrypt+Plugin

Thanks for your reply.
Actually I have installed it as per your recommendation using “/scripts/install_lets_encrypt_autossl_provider”. Now, I am able to set it in AutoSSL feature in WHM and also I have selected domains to use Let’s Encrypt. But the issue is I am not having its plugin in individual cPanel of any user. And when I run test I get the below details against my domain : getme.pk

Log for the AutoSSL run for “getme”: Monday, January 2, 2017 9:29:20 AM GMT+0500 (Let’s Encrypt™)

4:29:20 AM This system has AutoSSL set to use “Let’s Encrypt™”.
4:29:20 AM Checking websites for “getme” …
4:29:20 AM All websites owned by “getme” have valid SSL certificates.
4:29:20 AM The system has completed the AutoSSL check for “getme”.
4:29:20 AM The system has finished checking 1 user.
4:29:20 AM AutoSSL has deleted the log for the provider “cPanel” from Dec 2, 2016, 9:33:01 PM (UTC).

I’m not sure of the problem here. an SSL certificate has been installed for getme.pk ( valid until Apr 2017) and now when you check it’s telling you (correctly) that it already has a valid certificate.

Hey,

I successfully installed it using the thread : https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/free-ssl-https-cpanel/

Thanks.
