Hello! I deploy small sites for webcomic artists at Hiveworks and some of our artists use their own hosts. In one case we have a comic called White Noise that uses a host called A Small Orange. When the artist asked them directly they were told that to get a Let's Encrypt certificate manually and they would install it.
From the Getting Started page I believe what I need to do is use Certbot locally to create a certificate for this artist manually then send it to them. But I want to make sure there isn't something else I should be doing here. I do want to try and sell A Small Orange on supporting Let's Encrypt more directly but in the meantime I want to check with everyone here about what I should do (is there an FAQ I should send them?), since I don't often work with SSL certs and how to make them manually.
Thank you for any help you can give me!
And the form info is below:
- Their domain is:http://white-noise-comic.com/
- I ran this command: NA
- It produced this output: NA
- My web server is (include version): Unknown
- The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): linux 3.10.0-818.104.22.168.ELK.el6.x86_64
- My hosting provider, if applicable, is: https://asmallorange.com/
- I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): I don't believe so
- I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): Yes, Cpanel 70.0.69
- The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot-auto --versionif you're using Certbot): Not used yet.
Edit: artist gave me cpanel access and I'm seeing options for uploading a cert (by manually inputting one or uploading a .crt) and then applying it to one of their websites. I assume I generate the cert using certbot, but since I mostly deal with frontend/template work I want to make sure I'm not screwing anything up.
